Duncan Aviation, the world’s largest privately owned business jet service provider, takes sustainability seriously. The company recently earned NATA’s sustainability standard for aviation businesses. Now, Duncan Aviation is exploring ways to efficiently bring SAF to their customers.
The increasing trend towards SAF adoption has been seen in the West Coast of US, setting the role model for other States to follow similar sustainable practice and targets. The State of Nebraska is now exploring ways to bring in more SAF capabilities to airports.
Nebraska state officials and members from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED) and FlyORO visited Duncan Aviation at Lincoln Airport to explore the possibility of creating a SAF hub for the region. Offering a wide array of services from tip-to-tail maintenance to full FBO fuel services, Duncan Aviation would embrace the ability to offer SAF to their customers who use their FBO services at the Lincoln Airport.
More support can be seen towards regional airports, with the recent Biden Administration rolling out the Airport Terminal Program (ATP). The ATP is designed to fund safe, sustainable, and accessible airport terminals, inclusive of energy efficiency improvements1. Although this is still under review, airports could potentially be awarded additional funds for SAF operations via the ATP.
Also, in a bid to ramp up renewable fuel usage, the US Blender Tax Credit program was established to leverage financial burdens for qualified biofuel blenders, with an incentive of $1 per gallon of biodiesel or renewable diesel used in the blending process with petroleum diesel.
