Air traffic is expected to grow by 4% per year over the next 20 years. To reconcile this growth with the sector’s net-zero goal by 2050, airlines and airports will need to switch to sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). Producing SAF with renewable electricity is particularly promising. But e-SAF can only unfold its benefits if sound policy and market conditions are in place. More and more emerging economies are ready to enter this new market and seize the opportunities for local development.

A new publication by the International PtX Hub and Agora Verkehrwende provides an introductory overview on the subject of e-SAF for aviation, from fuel properties and production pathways to questions of costs, future availability and policy instruments at national and international level.

Both the content of the paper as well as the country cases of Kenya and Brazil, countries with strong ambitions to ramp up the production of SAF, will be presented and discussed in the launch webinar.
