Now is the time for an ambitious European e-kerosene target

July 2, 2021

T&E, Lufthansa, the Global Alliance Powerfuels, pilots representatives, and other aviation industry and energy players have called on the European Commission to set ambitious targets for e-kerosene, a green synthetic fuel, when it proposes the world’s first sustainable jet fuel law this month.

In this letter the group, which also includes Schiphol and Copenhagen airports and e-fuel suppliers, call for a target for the use of e-kerosene under the new ReFuel EU law commencing already in 2027 at 0.5% to 1% delivered to the EU market. The mandate could potentially rise to 2.5% in 2030, as long as the sustainability of such a target can be assured.
