• Fuels linked to deforestation and food price increases risk flooding the European aviation market

    MEPs must maintain robust control of what is considered a green aviation fuel on the Europe market in a crucial vote in the European Parliament

    Airlines and climate NGOs alike are concerned by the European Parliamentʼs Transport (TRAN) committee expansion of the definition of SAFs to widen the feedstock base for biofuels and would urge a return to the European Commission definition, only including feedstocks from the Annex IX of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED).

    SAFs have an important role to play in the decarbonisation of aviation. Now is the time to select the right type of SAF, because their sustainability depends on the feedstock that they are made from.
