    Sustainable Aviation Fuels. A flash analysis.

    The issues of sustainability and climate change are becoming increasingly relevant in all our lives. The same holds true for our aviation customers. The aviation industry is oftentimes held responsible for producing a significant share of global CO2 emissions and for not contributing enough to global climate goals. The use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) could change this in the future.

    In our current Flash Analysis "Sustainable Aviation Fuel - The (climate) saviour of aviation?" we take a look at the short to medium-term potential of SAF as a fuel alternative that is more environmentally compatible. We also discuss regulatory impediments and others tied to the availability of resources.
