The European Logistics Platform is organising an event entitled “ReFuel EU Aviation: a game-changing EU sustainable aviation fuel plan?” on 29 June from 15.30-17.00h.
As part of the European Green Deal adopted in December 2019, which highlights the importance of boosting development of sustainable alternative fuels, the European Commission envisages to support its proposal on 14 July as part of the Fit for 55 Package, to support the increased production and use of sustainable aviation fuels, so as to meet the Paris Agreement climate change goals. Some measures are in place, but production and use of these fuels in Europe remain low.
The ELP event on ReFuel EU Aviation will hear from experts the challenges, the potential and use-cases of sustainable aviation fuels. Policy makers and industry representatives will debate how the EU can create incentives and set the right regulatory framework to increase the uptake of SAF that will help to reduce aviation’s footprint.
The event will be hosted by MEP Jan-Christoph Oetjen, Vice-Chair and Member of the European Parliament’s Transport and Tourism (TRAN) Committee. Speakers include Filip Cornelis, Director Aviation at DG MOVE, Dr. Christoph Wolff, Member of the Executive Committee of the World Economic Forum, Karlijn Arts, Policy and Sustainability Lead, SkyNRG, Sebastian Dreyer, Head of Parliamentary & Government Relations at the German Aviation Association (BDL).
