In early 2018, the Swedish Government appointed a new committee with the purpose to analyse how the use of sustainable biofuels in aviation can increase in order to support the transition to a fossil-free energy system and reduced climate impact. The committee also had the task to propose adequate policy measures that could be implemented.

The committee has now published its final report. The key proposal is implementation of a reduction obligation quota system with gradually stricter demands of blending of renewable fuels into the kerosene that is used as fuel today. The demand for 2030 would be a 30 percent blend-in.

The final report is available for download (in Swedish) here.
