Fuelling Aviation Decarbonisation Through SAF & Innovations

Day 2 : 13:55 – 14:45

Aviation is one of the hard-to-abate sectors because of the use of carbon intensive jet fuel without alternatives. With the latest technological advancement, lower-carbon Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is considered the most feasible solution in near- to medium-term. However, Maximising the decarbonisation potential of SAF requires collaboration between sectors in the supply chain, and the policy incentives from the Government to make the business environment favourable to the uptake of SAF. Aside from SAF, industry stakeholders are also exploring other technological and systemic innovations to decarbonise aviation. This session will discuss such innovations and how to strengthen SAF development in Hong Kong.

Learnings   

  • What are the current climate challenges perceived by the aviation industry?
  • How do other regions do to promote the uptake of SAF?
  • What are the other technological and systematic innovations that are promising for aviation decarbonisation ?
  • How can we take a step further to make Hong Kong aviation more sustainable, in the context of regulation, finance mechanism, supply and demand, SAF positioning in holistic HK context?

Post-event Actions   

  • Adopt practices to support the aviation sectors to make wider use of SAF a reality in Hong Kong.
  • Strengthen Hong Kong’s position as sustainable aviation hub through innovative decarbonisation initiatives.
