Summary

​UK Sustainable Aviation group to develop a roadmap towards 30% of biofuels in aviation

The UK cross-sector industry group Sustainable Aviation (SA) has started work on a roadmap to plot a path towards achieving a 30 per cent take-up of sustainable alternative aviation fuels by 2050. These fuels are expected to contribute to an overall reduction of 18% in UK aviation CO2 emissions.

The primary purpose of the Sustainable Aviation Fuels Road-Map is to demonstrate to the UK government that this represents a serious opportunity and then encourage them to provide the incentives aviation is looking for and a level playing field with ground transport fuels.

The roadmap is expected to be unveiled at the Farnborough air show in July.

Launched in 2005 and now with 39 members, Sustainable Aviation is a national initiative of cross-sector interests formed to develop a common strategy on emissions and noise reductions. Over the past two years, it published roadmaps covering CO2 emissions and aircraft noise.
