aim of AIREG is to promote the development and use of renewable liquid fuels in
order to help achieve the carbon reduction targets of the aviation sector. AIREG is looking to replace 10% of the German jet fuel demand with sustainable,
alternative aviation fuels by 2025.
AIREG - Aviation Initiative for Renewable Energy in
Germany e.V. is an initiative set up by air carriers, airports, research institutions
as well as the aviation industry and other partners, and has its headquarters
The voluntary commitment of the
aviation industry towards carbon-neutral growth from 2020 on-wards can only be
achieved by fast and targeted action. Research and demonstration projects that
provide the opportunity for developing, demonstrating and evaluating options
for producing and using biokerosene must be implemented.
On a domestic level AIREG is proud
to having contributed to the Mobility and Fuels Strategy (MFS) of the German
Federal Government, which calls for a National Development Plan for Alternative
Aviation Fuel. Starting in 2015 the German Federal Ministry of Transport is
conducting a pre-feasibility study for a large-scale biorefinery, an important
implementation step for the MFS.
Germany with its leadership
position in research and technology is engaging in a great number of projects
along the entire alternative jet fuel value chain. AIREG supports these
activities through stakeholder involvement, public relations, etc.
Internationally, AIREG is monitoring
the ICAO process towards a global market-based mechanism to reduce avation’s
carbon emissions. These negotiations offer an important opportunity to
stipulate alternative aviation fuels as a cornerstone of the industries’
