ReFuelEU Aviation Regulation targets increased SAF usage

ReFuelEU Aviation Regulation targets increased SAF usage

Sustainabile Aviation Fuels have gained considerable momentum in the aviation industry in recent times, due to their potential as a drop-in replacement for conventional fossil aviation fuels. Interest is also supported by the lack of sustainable alternatives with hydrogen or electric powered aircraft deemed unfeasbile and not financially viable in the short term. The European Union have underlined their focus on Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) through the Green Deal and underpinned this with clear numbers and mandates in the ReFuelEU Aviation draft regulations. What, though, exactly does the draft regulation mean and what impact could it have on the SAF market in the coming years? Find out more here.
