EPRS - ReFuelEU Aviation Initiative

Description

In the ReFuelEU Aviation initiative, the European Commission proposes obligations on fuel suppliers to distribute an increasing share of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), including synthetic aviation fuels, over time, in order to increase the uptake of SAF by airlines and thereby reduce emissions from aviation. The proposal also includes obligations on airlines to limit the uptake of jet fuel before departing from EU airports to what is needed for safe operation of flights, with the aim of ensuring a level playing field for airlines and airports, and avoiding additional emissions related to extra weight of aircraft carrying excessive amounts of fuel.
