NNFCC News Review: Biofuels Issue 93, December 2019

Category: biofuels
Published: 23/12/2019
Author: NNFCC
Each month we review the latest news and select key announcements and commentary from across the biofuels sector.


Some positive news on the aviation front – carbon emissions per passenger have declined by over 50% since 1990. However, this is not only attributed to the increasing use of biofuels, but also the improvements in operational efficiencies, which come with new and more efficient aircrafts. Carbon offsetting too is contributing. Especially as public perception on the aviation industry and its contributions towards carbon emissions shifts, both individuals and industry are taking steps to ‘offset’ their impact. The Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) is to ensure carbon-neutral growth on international flights from 2020, likely to result in a large decrease in carbon emissions per passenger – something else to look forward to in the New Year!
