Queensland government pushing ahead with SAF industry creation

November 30, 2022 |

In Australia, the Palaszczuk Government is accelerating plans to make Queensland the capital of a local sustainable aviation fuels industry. Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development Steven Miles said a roundtable was held on Friday, bringing together key industry players to launch a pathway for Queensland to capitalize on the global shift to green jet fuels.

“With the world moving into a low emissions future, there has been an explosion in demand for low carbon aviation fuel,” Miles said.

“The world’s airlines have set a target of net zero emissions by 2050 with sustainable aviation fuels needed in large quantities to achieve this. We have a tremendous opportunity to tap into this market and become the nation’s leader in a new export industry with huge economic and environmental benefits. Queensland is recognised as one of the best locations for a supply chain on home soil due to our rich supply of feedstock such as sugarcane and tallow.”

“If we get this right, Queensland could be producing and distributing green fuels for flights across domestic and international markets,” he said.
