Overview
Learn about the launch of a new competition to support fuel producers

Join us for a one hour webinar to hear about the launch of a new competition where you can win an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) and jet fuel testing support.

The Sustainable Aviation Fuel for Clean Growth (SAFCG) competition aims to help fuel producers engage with OEMs and reduce market entry risk for new sustainable aviation fuels.

UK companies and research organisations are being offered a unique opportunity to acquire an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) as part of a new competition launching next month.

The competition is also offering the chance for UK fuel producers to receive free expert consultancy and testing from the University of Sheffield, JETSCREEN and fuel expert Chris Lewis, plus members of Sustainable Aviation including Airbus, Boeing and Rolls Royce.

After the briefing, online attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to our experts, including:

  • Jon Hart, Rolls Royce
  • Leigh Hudson, IAG
  • Chris Lewis, Chris Lewis Fuels Consultancy LTD
  • Solange Baena, Airbus Operations

Background

SAF for Clean Growth is timely and presents an opportunity to showcase the aviation sector’s commitment to decarbonisation and alignment to government’s Clean Growth Strategy, Industrial Strategy and imminent Bioeconomy Strategy. The aviation sector’s UN Body, International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), is set to implement a new climate regulation – the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).  From 2021, the regulations will recognise the use of SAF, opening up a global market for new fuel technologies.

Combined with the amendments to the Department for Transport’s Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) which enable the purchase of credits to produce SAF, the positive sustainability and renewables agenda presents an unprecedented opportunity for the UK to position itself and become a world leader in the production of SAF.
