The CAAFI® Biennial General Meeting (CBGM) is a critical convening event to connect sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) stakeholders across global industries and sectors and provides a venue to share information and showcase technologies.  CAAFI is a public-private partnership of airlines, aircraft and engine manufacturers, energy producers, researchers, international participants and U.S. government agencies. Its goal is to promote the development and deployment of SAF that provide equivalent safety and performance, favorable costs, and are better for the environment compared with petroleum-based jet fuel, while offering energy supply security for aviation.  The CBGM enables CAAFI’s diverse participants – representing all the leading stakeholders in the field of aviation – to build relationships, share best practices and data, identify resources, and direct research, development and deployment of alternative jet fuels.

The 2022 CAAFI Biennial General Meeting comes at an important time with the advent of the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), the SAF Grand Challenge announced by the White House in September, including a commitment to producing 3 billion gallons of SAF annually by 2030 and 25 billion gallons by 2050, and growing industry commitments to net-zero aviation by 2050.

The anticipated session topics include:

  • U.S. Government and international policies and programs enhancing SAF progress.
  • The U.S. SAF Grand Challenge and Roadmap.
  • Expanding commercial deployment.
  • Expanding market demand through airline and other end users’ commitments.
  • SAF qualification under ASTM.
  • Sustainability approaches including environmental, social, and economic performance, and the potential for contributing to ecosystem services.
  • Sharing best practices for evaluating SAF, developing supply chains, and new/improved technologies for SAF production.
  • Research programs such as the USDA NIFA Coordinated Agriculture Projects, Department of Energy programs, and the Aviation Sustainability Center of Excellence.
  • Future directions and opportunities such as approaches to achieving higher SAF blend levels up to 100% SAF, carbon management, feedstock expansion, and use of renewable hydrogen and energy.
