The SAF issupplied locally from bp’s Castellon refinery and available across the Air bp network in Spain. Waste based sustainable feedstocksis procured by the refinery and co-processed (together with fossil fuel), producing synthetic low carbon fuel.SAF can then be certified using International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS procedures. Co-processing is a key step in replacing fossil fuelwithrenewable feedstock within refineries and helping to advance the decarbonization of transport including aviation.The ISCC PLUS certified SAF has an attributed saving of around 80% carbon emissions over its lifecycle compared with conventional jet fuel it replaces. This is the first time that Air bp has sold SAF using the ISCC PLUS certified method.

Christian Luwisch, NetJets Europe, Executive Director, said, “We are proud to collaborate with Air bp to supply SAF for NetJets’ aircraft in Europe. This new partnership is an important next step in our ongoing commitment to reduce the environmental footprint of our company. Our Owners will now benefit from this supply of SAF which we expect to be in the region of 325,000 USG during the first 12 months.”

Martin Thomsen, CEO, Air bp, said, “We are excited to announce our first sale of SAF in Spain, which opens up new supply opportunities in an important aviation market. We are also delighted to have the support of our customer, NetJets Europe, whichd emonstrates their willingness to invest in SAF to help reduce carbon emissions. We hope this announcement will encourage more customersto purchase SAF in Spain. We believe SAF is one of the aviation industry’s key routes to reducing carbon emissions, and ISCC PLUS certified SAF is the first step towards developing new refining and commercial solutions, including those that achieve CORSIA certification, to keep decarbonizing our offers for our aviation customers.”

Air bp was involved in fuelling the first SAF flight by an airline in February 2008 and since then has been enabling ground-breaking test flights and investing in sustainable alternative fuels. To date Air bp has supplied sustainable aviation fuel to over 20 airports.

* International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS certified sustainable aviation fuel results from co-processed renewable oil used for replacement of fossil fuel, under a mass balance basis. Further details on the ISCC can be found at www.iscc-system.org
