Bridging the price gap for sustainable aviation fuel

Comissioned by Bioenergy Australia with the Sustainable Avaition Fuel Alliance of Australia and New Zealand (SAFAANZ) and authored by EnergyLink Services (March 2022).

This report has been prepared to review the SAF industry’s current state within Australia, and, based on a review of international policy instruments, propose how to bridge the price gap between SAF and conventional aviation fuel in Australia. In addition to the policy review, stakeholders from across the SAF value chain consulted on the development of four key recommendations for bridging that gap. Stakeholders consulted included Government representatives, airlines, airport operators, traditional aviation fuel suppliers, SAF producers, fuel infrastructure owners, airplane manufacturers, academic researchers and international aviation and biofuel professionals.

The recommended policies are designed to support the emergence of the SAF supply chain, guide ongoing policy development for the industry and stimulate demand for SAF throughout Australia. This report builds upon internationally-recognised best practices, as well as lessons learned, to propose recommendations for an Australian context.
