Alaska Airlines Partners with Boeing and the Port of Seattle on Plan to Supply Sustainable Aviation Biofuel At Sea-Tac Airport

The Alaska Airlines, the Port of Seattle and Boeing are partnering to move toward a significant environmental goal: powering all flights by all airlines at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport with sustainable aviation biofuel. Sea-Tac is the first U.S. airport to lay out a long-term roadmap to incorporate aviation biofuel into its infrastructure in a cost-effective, efficient manner. The executives for the port, Alaska Airlines, and Boeing signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to launch a $250,000 Biofuel Infrastructure Feasibility Study that will assess costs and infrastructure necessary to deliver a blend of aviation biofuel and conventional jet fuel to aircraft at Sea-Tac, a crucial step toward routine biofuel use in the future. The partners' longer-term plan is to incorporate significant quantities of biofuel into Sea-Tac's fuel infrastructure, which is used by all 26 airlines and more than 380,000 flights annually at the airport. Sea-Tac is the 13th busiest airport in the U.S. and will serve over 42 million domestic and international passengers this year. The Port of Seattle will manage the $250,000 study as the biofuel roadmapping process and, as Sea-Tac Airport's governing authority, would handle the engineering and integration of biofuel infrastructure on Port property such as the airport's fuel farm. An RFP for the infrastructure study will be issued in the spring of 2016, and the study is expected to be completed by late 2016. Currently, aviation biofuels are not produced in Washington state and must be imported by truck, rail or barge.
