Estimating sustainable aviation fuel feedstock availability to meet growing European Union demand

The European Union (EU) is considering ambitious alternative fuel policies to decarbonize aviation. However, it is critical that policymakers set realistic sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) deployment goals that match the amount of fuel that could be made from available feedstock. This study evaluates the EU resource base that can support SAF production from 2025 to 2035, focusing only on the potential volumes available from sustainably available feedstocks.
