RSB helping with aviation fuel roadmap for Ethiopia

October 6, 2018 |

In Switzerland, the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials is helping develop an aviation fuel roadmap for Ethiopia. RSB’s Executive Director Rolf Hogan attended a series of meetings in Addis Ababa to take forward the initiative that was launched at the Aviation Biofuel Summit in March 2018. Shortly after the Summit, Ethiopia transitioned to a new Prime Minister who has initiated a series of democratic and economic reforms.

The Minister for Pubic Enterprise and the Minister for Mining Petroleum and Natural Gas reaffirmed their commitment to supporting the development of the roadmap as did Ethiopian Airlines and the Ministry of Industry. An RSB team also visited ethanol facilities and sugarcane out-growers as part of the development of RSB regional indicators for Ethiopia. The indicators should be finalized in October and will support the development of Ethiopian legislation as well as facilitating certification.
