NNFCC News Review: Biofuels Issue 101, August 2020

Each month we review the latest news and select key announcements and commentary from across the biofuels sector.


Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production in Europe, though not yet on par with other biofuels, has been steadily rising. Mandates requiring minimum SAF blends are a contributing factor. Norway for example currently has a 0.5% blending mandate for SAF, and on a wider scope the European Commission hopes to increase the uptake of SAF. A new roadmap initiative called ReFuelEU Aviation aims at boosting supply and demand within the EU, and the proposal for the regulation finished the consultation period in April.
