Expert Opinion on… CORSIA: The Potential Impact on the SAF Market

Submitted by on August 8, 2018 – 1:09 pmNo Comment

by Karlijn Arts (SkyNGR Market Update)  Recently new decisions were made in the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Karlijn Arts, who started at SkyNRG as Policy & Sustainability Manager last May, shares her opinion on the potential impact of the recent decisions made under CORSIA on the SAF market. …

It is our expectation that the recent decisions made regarding progressing ICAO’s CORSIA program will not directly influence the development of SAF on the short to middle-long term (up to 2025). Besides the fact that we have concerns regarding the sustainability criteria currently accepted, and the potential risks of the additional carbon mitigation options, the program has not really changed from an “economic incentive for SAF” point of view.

As it stands, the price of carbon under the CORSIA system will (still) not be able to bridge the premium between SAF and fossil kerosene. Carbon credits will most likely remain the economically attractive option for an airline over SAF in the coming years.

This scheme is laying a basis that could very well serve as a framework for the internationally aligned introduction of SAF in an international context. READ MORE
