As part of the Green Deal, the European Commission has launched the “ReFuelEU Aviation Initiative” to increase the role of “sustainable aviation fuels” in EU aviation. This report for Transport and Environment discusses the potential supply of different SAF categories in 2030, and what might be required to deliver a rapid supply expansion. This includes presenting results from a simple bottom-up SAF production model, and discussing what an ambitious but potentially achievable level might be for a GHG intensity reduction target for 2030 aviation fuel.
