Clay Lacy offers SAF, runs ground-support vehicles on renewable diesel at 2 California airports
Clay Lacy Aviation will offer sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at the company’s two fixed-base operator (FBO) locations at Van Nuys Airport and John Wayne Orange County Airport in California. World Fuel Services begins monthly SAF deliveries to both locations in March, with deliveries this year to total a minimum of 100,000 gallons.
World Fuel is also providing renewable diesel fuel to power Clay Lacy’s fuel trucks, GPUs, tugs and other ground-support vehicles.
The renewable diesel and SAF delivered to Clay Lacy are produced by World Energy.
“We exist to empower leaders to reduce their transportation-based carbon footprint,” said Bryan Sherbacow, chief commercial officer at World Energy. “By making SAF accessible to the business jets flying out of their FBOs, Clay Lacy is leading a shift toward more sustainable operations and creating the opportunity for others to benefit from using cleaner fuels.”
Scott Cutshall, Clay Lacy’s senior vice president of business operations, said, “World Fuel is a key partner in our sustainability strategy, implementing a broad range of initiatives to significantly reduce our carbon footprint. Developed in concert with experts at World Kinect Energy, our strategy also includes carbon-offset programs for aircraft management and FBO customers, as well as renewable energy and sustainable purchasing, construction and operating practices. We are proud to report that all Clay Lacy facilities have achieved net-zero carbon status for calendar years 2019 and 2020.”
