Biofuels have become a part of the everyday energy mix and now on the increase as part of energy transition targets. As regulations increase the aviation industry is accelerating use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) as a route to 2050 decarbonisation objectives. This panel will look at how sustainable aviation fuels are evolving and discuss what environmental impact they will have. How are SAFs being developed including investment opportunities in the sector? And how sustainable are they? Can SAFs be made in a way that does not damage biodiversity or compete with feeding the world?
Moderator: Daniel Bloch, Sustainable Aviation Fuel Manager, IATA
