Neste’s SAF will be blended with conventional jet fuel at a 30/70 ratio to produce 5.6 million (US) gallons (21.2 million liters) of blended SAF.
EPIC Fuels, Signature Aviation, and Avfuel will supply blended SAF for Boeing’s ecoDemonstrator program and the company’s fuel storage in Washington (WA) state and South Carolina (SC).
Additionally, EPIC Fuels and Signature Aviation will supply blended SAF for generating emissions reduction benefits for Boeing to allocate for company operations including Dreamlifter and executive flights, and commercial airplane deliveries.
As one of the top aircraft manufacturers in the world, Boeing is sending a clear message to the entire aviation industry through this purchase that SAF is a key solution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from flying. We are proud to be a part of this collaboration along with our partners EPIC Fuels, Signature Aviation, and Avfuel, said Michael Sargeant, VP of Americas, Renewable Aviation at Neste.
In 2021, Boeing committed to delivering its commercial airplanes capable and certified to fly on 100 percent SAF by 2030.
