Air bp has just announced its first sale of ISCC PLUS certified sustainable aviation fuel in Spain.

Air bp’s key business aviation customer, NetJets Europe has become the first to purchase the fuel, starting from the beginning of July.

The SAF is supplied locally from bp’s Castellon refinery and available across the Air bp network in Spain. Waste based sustainable feedstocks is 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 PLUS procedures.

Co-processing is a key step in replacing fossil fuel with renewable feedstock within refineries and helping to advance the decarbonisation 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.
