As it continues its support of the use of sustainable aviation fuels within the business aviation sector, the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) will participate in the first ICAO Stocktaking Seminar toward the 2050 Vision for Sustainable Aviation Fuels, which will take place from April 30 to May 1 in Montreal. The event will provide a forum for the exchange of aviation fuel information and will serve as the first step towards the establishment of a quantified 2050 ICAO Vision for Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
IBAC will represent the business aviation community at the event, which will feature policy and decision makers from ICAO member states and technical experts from the fuel supply chain, airlines, airports, fuel producers, aircraft manufacturers, and others.
“The goal is to inspire member states, industry, and other stakeholders to substitute a significant proportion of conventional aviation fuels with sustainable fuels by 2050,” said IBAC director general Kurt Edwards. “The business aviation community is making progress, but more work needs to be done to increase availability and expand awareness that these drop-in fuels are ready to use today.”
