The Business Aviation Coalition for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF Coalition) will sponsor its first two-day summit next month to address ways to accelerate the market for renewable jet fuels.
This online summit replaces a live event originally slated to take place in Washington, D.C., in March but canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Included will be four panel discussions featuring the industry’s top experts on sustainable aviation fuel, with sessions including a review of the current SAF situation, short-term supply strategies from fuel providers, long-term regulatory perspectives, and operators' overview. Each will include a Q&A session.
The coalition includes EBAA, NBAA, NATA, GAMA, and IBAC, as well as its newest member: the Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative (CAAFI). The two days of programming will feature the heads of those organizations, in addition to an array of executives representing all aspects of the fuel supply chain from fuel producers and fuel distributors to FBOs, airframers, and aircraft operators.
This summit follows on the heels of SAF events last year in Van Nuys, California; Farnborough, England; Geneva, Switzerland; and other demonstration locations, all aimed at increasing the education and awareness of the benefits of these fuels in reducing the industry’s carbon emissions. The coalition also recently released the second edition of its SAF guide, Fueling the Future.
