Full compliance with ASTM D7566

Chemically identical to conventional jet fuel; certified under ASTM D7566.

Lower greenhouse gas emissions

Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel is made from 100% waste and residues, mainly used cooking oil and animal waste fat.

Improved efficiency

High octane number of 75 and above ensures efficient and clean combustion and can lower fuel consumption.

Outstanding cold weather performance

Freeze point of -47°C/-53°F or lower.

Each truckload of SAF provides a 22 metric ton reduction in carbon emissions*

In partnership with its branded fuel supplier, Avfuel Corporation, Telluride Regional Airport became the first fixed base operator (FBO) in Colorado to make sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) available to its customers.

The FBO received its first demonstrative delivery of SAF from Avfuel on Saturday, February 27, with two following in March.

Telluride Regional Airport has since begun to receive regular deliveries of Neste’s branded SAF supply from Avfuel— Neste MY SAF. The first load arrived on April 15; each truckload of Avfuel’s Neste MY SAF provides a 22 metric ton reduction in carbon emissions over its lifecycle, which is equivalent to the amount of carbon sequestered by 28.7 acres of U.S. forests per year. SAF is the most effective way to reduce a flight’s carbon footprint; and, in the future, SAF could deliver up to 80% less greenhouse gas emissions versus traditional jet fuel if used in its neat form. With the arrangement, Telluride Regional Airport can now consistently provide SAF for all jet and turbine aircraft that fly in to the airport in order to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support sustainability goals.

Neste MY SAF is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue materials—such as used cooking oil. It is a fully-approved drop-in fuel that, once blended with petroleum jet fuel, meets ASTM D-1655 specification for conventional jet fuel and performance standards under all operating conditions. This makes Neste MY SAF an optimum solution to directly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from aircraft, requiring no new investments, modifications or changes to the aircraft, fuel distribution procedures or airport fuel storage tanks.

“Our community desires to do its part in reducing carbon emissions,” said Kenneth Maenpa, Telluride’s airport manager. “As such, we are proud to be the first airport in Colorado to provide sustainable aviation fuel. Avfuel has worked diligently on the logistics for delivering SAF to Telluride Regional Airport, and we’re excited to announce this significant milestone that’s been three years in the making.”

*Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel, in its neat form and over the life cycle, reduces lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% compared to fossil jet fuel use (calculated with established life cycle assessment (LCA) methodologies, such as CORSIA methodology).
