Pioneering Green Aviation: NBAsia’s SAF Shipment


Sustainable Aviation Fuel

NYK Bulkship (Asia) Pte. Ltd. (“NBAsia”) has commenced its first shipment of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The SAF departed from Singapore on an MR-type product tanker and is scheduled to be unloaded at the ports of Los Angeles and San Francisco in the United States. Following its arrival, the SAF will be delivered to airports in the region.

SAF is a jet fuel made from renewable raw materials such as waste cooking oil. It is considered environmentally friendly and can reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) by up to 80% compared to existing jet fuel derived from crude oil. Neste, the world’s leading producer of sustainable fuels, began operations at a new SAF manufacturing plant in Singapore in June 2023, and its SAF is used at major airports in the United States, Germany, Singapore, Japan, and more.

NBAsia’s Commitment to Sustainable Transport

On fifteen previous voyages, NBAsia has transported Neste’s refined diesel fuel, which is used to power construction equipment, trucks, and automobiles. NBAsia will continue to contribute to realizing a sustainable society through the transportation of next-generation decarbonized fuels, such as renewable diesel and SAF.
