RSB launches new engagement in China’s sustainable aviation fuel market

August 9, 2020 |

In Switzerland, as part of their global drive to support the aviation industry in achieving decarbonization through the use of alternative sustainable aviation fuels, RSB is turning its attention to China. In a project made possible by the ClimateWorks Foundation, RSB is working with MotionECO, to develop a roadmap for SAF in China to help guide the trajectory of growth along a sustainable path.

With a domestic aviation market that is predicted to be the world’s largest by 2028 and overall industry growth in the country anticipated to outpace global levels annually until at least 2038, China will be key to unlocking global sustainability in aviation.

Combining RSB’s long-term global expertise with MotionECO’s local experience and hands-on capability, this initiative will assess the current status and potential of SAF in China, map key national and international stakeholders, and ultimately stimulate the development of a SAF roadmap via stakeholder workshop at the end of the year. The SAF roadmap is expected to advise on sustainability, feedstock, technical and policy pathways that will support the sustainable growth of the Chinese aviation sector.

Focusing on the SAF sector, RSB’s CORSIA Standard, which will be used to certify CORSIA eligible fuels, has been submitted to ICAO for recognition.
