Summary

Indonesian Green Aviation Initiative introduces blending targets for aviation biofuels
 
The Indonesian government is introducing, through the Green Aviation Initiative, wide-ranging environmental measures regarding aviation greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. They include the replacement of the country’s airline fleet with new technology jets, improving air traffic management, as well as measures to reduce emissions at airports. They also includes biofuels use for aircraft operations as detailed in the working papers presented by Indonesia to the 38th Assembly of ICAO.
 
Indonesia is also the first State that set legally binding provisions for biofuels use in aviation. End of August, a decree under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources issued mandatory targets for fuel providers and distributors to provide 2% of biofuels in aviation mix by 2016, 3% by 2020 and 5% by 2025. The estimated corresponding cumulative carbon emissions reduction to 2020 amounts to 2.725 Mt.
 
In line with government's directives, the September issue of Orient Aviation magazine reports that Garuda announced it set an ambitious plan to use biofuel mixtures by 2015. The 2% target represents about 10 million litres annually, which accounts for 1% of Garuda’s yearly fuel consumption.
