Workshop "Achieving 2 million tons of biofuels use in aviation by 2020"

Brussels, 18 May 2011

This Workshop was organised by the European Commission in cooperation with Airbus. The purpose was to discuss with all key stakeholders a road map for accelerating the deployment of paraffinic sustainable biofuels in the aviation sector and ensuring that the EU will reach their commercialisation by 2020. The target is to reach a bio-kerosene contribution of 2 million tons per year by 2020.

The workshop has been attended by about 100 participants from the aviation sector, the biofuel producers industry, NGOs, various organisations and representatives from the European Commission (DG ENER, MOVE, RTD).
