On January 30th, 2020, Banyan received its first delivery of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from Michigan-based Avfuel Corporation. 7,000 gallons were received at its Florida facility located on Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (KFXE).
SAF is a clean substitute for fossil jet fuels. Rather than being refined from petroleum, SAF is produced from sustainable feedstocks such as waste oils from biological origin, agri residues or non-fossil CO2. The fuel received was allotted to operators via commitments prior to its delivery.
