Commenting on the Government’s recently published Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, Sustainable Aviation Chair Adam Morton said:
“Sustainable Aviation welcomes this morning’s Ten Point Plan for a UK led Green Industrial Revolution. It is particularly encouraging that Jet Zero is identified as one of the priority areas. Through this investment and the work of the newly formed Jet Zero Council, UK aviation has the potential to lead the world in developing and deploying cutting edge technologies such as Sustainable Aviation Fuel or SAF.
“SAF technology is available now, can be used in existing engines and aircraft, and its production overlaps strongly with the regions that have been earmarked for hydrogen and CCUS projects. However, follow-up action is needed urgently to stimulate the required private sector investment and remove obstacles to deployment. Over the longer term, these synthetic fuels will be joined by electric and hydrogen propulsion as part of a package to deliver net-zero flight.”
