World Energy and World Fuel Services Supply Sustainable Aviation Fuel at Two Locations During NBAA-BACE 2021

-- Companies Extend Book and Claim Program --

October 6, 2021 – BOSTON and HOUSTON – World Energy and World Fuel Services announced today that they are providing Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) to two Las Vegas FBOs, Henderson Executive Airport (HND) and Atlantic Aviation at McCarran International Airport (LAS), during the 2021 National Business Aviation Association’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE). World Fuel is supplying the SAF from World Energy, the world’s first and America’s only commercial-scale SAF producer. SAF is a “drop-in” fuel equivalent that reduces carbon dioxide emissions by up to 80 percent over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil fuels. Since 2015, World Fuel has delivered more than 22 million gallons of World Energy’s SAF to business and commercial aviation customers.

World Energy and World Fuel Services will also expand their efforts to increase SAF availability and supply chain efficiency by offering Book and Claim to all customers flying during NBAA-BACE and beyond. Book and Claim allows customers, no matter where they are in the world, to derive the same environmental benefits of SAF without consuming the physical product. For Book and Claim, customers will need to contact their World Fuel sales representative for more information.

Gene Gebolys, CEO, World Energy, stated: “World Fuel has been a great partner to us over many years in introducing SAF to the world. Our companies share much more than a first name. Together, we are collaborating to find ever smarter, better, and more efficient ways to empower our corporate clients to lead. Today’s announcement marks just the latest step in the long journey toward affordable carbon-free flight at scale.” 

Steve Drzymalla, senior vice president for business aviation bulk fuel, World Fuel Services, stated: “During NBAA-BACE, we are enabling operators to lower their emissions using SAF or Book and Claim. This action reflects our ongoing commitment to helping customers understand their options around sustainability, develop multi-year plans and then execute on them.”

No two approaches are the same on the path to net-zero. World Fuel is in a unique position because of its in-house expertise provided by World Kinect, its sustainability division. They help develop and fulfill comprehensive sustainability solutions all under one roof. They offer solutions supporting four key activities:

·       Develop a carbon reduction plan

·       Reduce energy use

·       Source renewable energy, such as SAF and Book and Claim

·       Offset carbon emissions – a bridge to net-zero

Attendees of NBAA-BACE can speak with experts on getting started on their path to net-zero by stopping by World Fuel’s booth, #701, Las Vegas Convention Center, West Hall.
