Sustainable aviation jet fuel is the future

Ahead of the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, business aviation leaders gathered at TAG Farnborough Airport on Saturday 18 May to discuss the path forward for the continued adoption of sustainable aviation jet fuel (SAJF) in Europe.

During the gathering, the global coalition of business aviation organizations behind the SAJF initiative called for increased collaboration and the broader adoption and availability of sustainable fuel across the industry. Air BP’s biojet commercial development manager, Tom Parsons, stated that “while there is plenty of noise in the commercial aviation space about SAJF, there is now an opportunity for business aviation to lead the way.”

The industry’s commitment to emissions reduction centers around three primary goals: A 2% improvement in fuel efficiency per year from 2010 until 2020; carbon-neutral growth from 2020 onwards; and a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050, relative to 2005. These goals will be achieved through advancements across four pillars: more efficient operations; continuing infrastructure improvements; market-based measures; and technology, including the development of alternative aircraft fuels.
