Continuing its commitment to deliver economical, 100% drop-in replacement biofuels, Byogy is delighted that Avianca Brasil has selected the Byogy Renewables Alcohol to Jet (“ATJ”) fully renewable aviation biofuel process to source their environment friendly alternate low carbon aviation fuels in the future (www.byogy.com).
“The road to achieve certification of an alternative aviation fuel and reach commercial scale volume production is challenging and long. Avianca is the right partner for long journeys”, said Kevin Weiss, President and CEO of Byogy.
The fastest growing airline in Brazil, Avianca now operates one of the newest, most modern aircraft fleets in Latin America. Brazil, a world leader in the production of sugar cane ethanol, can leverage the Byogy ATJ process and lead the world in the development of a truly sustainable renewable aviation fuel industry.
Avianca has selected its Airbus A319, powered by CFMI (a partnership between General Electric and SNECMA of France) CFM56 engines, as the fleet member to be used with Byogy for advanced testing and data acquisition which will support the ATJ specification adoption process which is well under way with the global ASTM governing organization.
“Byogy is most pleased to welcome Avianca to our ATJ team”, said Weiss.
