Private report shows Ireland is well positioned to produce SAF

March 15, 2023 |

In Ireland, RTE reported that a study by Aircraft Leasing Ireland (ALI) and KPMG stated that Ireland is well positioned to produce sustainable aviation fuel. The report defines the actions that the aircraft leasing sector and the Government could take to help with SAF production. These include establishing a framework for SAF production, partnering with universities to fund SAF research and development and supporting the creation of a sustainability accreditation register. Jan Melgaard, Chair of ALI’s Sustainability Committee, said: “By incentivizing the development and production of SAF, this government can help attract what will be a game-changing manufacturing sector to Ireland, which will also lead to the creation of a significant number of highly skilled jobs.” “As a country, Ireland is well positioned to support the development and production of SAF as we have significant sources of key items required, namely renewable electricity, and agricultural and forestry residues, not to mention the intellectual capital actively involved in this sector,” said Shane O’Reilly, Director, KPMG.
