About this Event

SAF are biofuels made from vegetable oils or ethanol derived from crops and they can deliver a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. The advantage is that there is no need for expensive modifications to aircraft or high-cost airport infrastructure.
This international event will explore the new challenges for operators as well as aircraft and engine manufacturers.

Agenda Highlights

  • Shaping a sustainable future for aviation
  • How can we increase investment in SAF projects?
  • How can we scale-up production of SAF while reducing its cost?
  • How governments in Canada can support SAF production and consumption
  • Decarbonising aviation to meet Net Zero by 2050
  • SAF environmental sustainability
  • Innovations in aviation: A vision for the future
