The Netherlands launches its WDB SAF Action Programme
The Netherlands has initiated the ‘Sustainable Aviation Table’, which brings the government and the Dutch aviation industry together to discuss the actions that need to be taken in order to establish a net zero emission industry in the long run. One of the working groups of the Sustainable Aviation Table is the working group on sustainable fuels, in Dutch known as the ‘Werkgroep Duurzame Brandstoffen’ (abbreviated to WDB). The purpose of the WDB is to accelerate and positively stimulate movement towards the targets set for the production and uptake of SAF in the Netherlands. The WDB has committed to replacing 14% of its fossil kerosene with sustainable kerosene by 2030. Furthermore, the WDB strives for 100% fossil kerosene replacement with SAF by 2050. Lastly, this coalition of government and industry seeks to achieve zero emissions from aviation by 2070.
