The sixth SAFS organised by IATA will see the event hosted in Europe for the first time. It will build on existing momentum and draw a diverse international audience to advance the dialogue around the commercialisation of sustainable aviation fuels. Topics will include SAF technical and commercial progress; the political landscape including the growing appetite for nuanced policy towards SAF; airline forward purchase commitments and project developments; regulatory and demand-side sustainability requirements; emerging SAF technologies such as Power-to-Liquid; and how to tackle the challenges for more rapid commercial deployment.
The seminar will provide an insight into the challenging aspects of fossil-based and renewable aviation fuels. It will address production technologies and international specifications for commercial and military kerosene jet fuels; an OEM perspective of performance and quality requirements for modern aviation fuels and their impact on aircraft operation; use and impact of aviation fuel additives; ASTM approval process for new aviation fuels and additives; and current and future alternative and renewable fuel components for aviation. The seminar will consist of presentations, Q&A discussion and networking. It is organised by Aviation Fuel Projects Consulting and conducted in cooperation with Chris Lewis Fuels Consultancy.
This seminar will provide an opportunity to continue the quantification of current and future SAF availability. Additionally, it will expand the scope of the stocktaking process by covering in-sector emissions reduction opportunities from aircraft technology improvements, innovations and operational improvements. ICAO Member States and stakeholders are invited to participate in the ICAO Stocktaking process by completing an ICAO Stocktaking 2020 Questionnaire.
As well as participating in the ICAO stocktaking process, attendees will have the opportunity to build partnerships with stakeholders and learn about the latest policies and initiatives related to aviation CO2 emissions reductions. The seminar will be attended by policy and decision makers from ICAO Member States; airlines, airports, fuel producers, manufacturers, environmental groups, energy companies, financial groups, aviation marketing agents and other organisations; technical experts and researchers from the entire fuel supply chain; and additional interested parties and individuals.

Global Sustainable Aviation Summit 2020
29-30 September 2020
Organised by the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG), this international event will bring together aviation sector sustainability leaders with governments to discuss highly relevant issues that will impact the industry’s sustainability agenda. It will provide an opportunity to learn about the extensive work that is ongoing across the industry to enable the aviation sector to play its role in long-term climate action. The Summit will also look at the role of the sector in global economic and social development; sustainable aviation fuels; technology, operations and infrastructure. A series of tailored workshops looking at other aspects of sustainable development of air transport will also take place.
