A two-day workshop took place on the 23rd and 24th of September to design a framework to decarbonize Irish Aviation. Sustainable Flight Solutions and the Bernal Institute hosted this event, with the aim of issuing a report to policymakers by the end of 2021.

Aviation is at a crossroads: its future must be environmentally sustainable to ensure continued operation and growth.  Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) will play an important part in the future development of the industry. As things stand, there is no SAF industry in Ireland. Nor is there a roadmap to start one. The commercial and economic threat of doing nothing is real.

Delegates from four major airlines operating in Ireland, the main airports, aviation and national authorities, aviation fuel traders and manufacturers, political parties, as well as three universities with leading aviation-linked research and education programs (Dublin City University, Trinity College Dublin and the University of Limerick)attended.

Discussions around creating the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Roadmap are ongoing, a further meeting with aviation stakeholders, industry experts and Bernal Institute researchers was held on November 12th.
