ICAO Releases Revised Positive List on Non-Standard Coconuts for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)

In a significant move towards sustainable aviation, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has announced the release of an official notification regarding a revised positive list of wastes, residues and by-products categories as feedstocks for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). This list now includes non-standard coconut as a by-product and potential feedstock for SAF, marking a crucial step in mitigating carbon emissions in the aviation industry.

This initiative, supported by the Government of Japan and the Green Power Development Corporation of Japan (GPDJ), in collaboration with the Indonesia-Japan Business Network (IJBNET), relevant government institutions,  and the International Coconut Community (ICC), marks a milestone in the global effort to promote eco-friendly aviation practices.

Inclusion of the Non-Standard coconut to the positive list signifies a concerted effort to expand the sources of feedstock for SAF beyond traditional options, opening up opportunities for coconut-producing countries to contribute to carbon reduction in the aviation sector. This initiative aligns with the global push for sustainable development and carbon neutrality, emphasizing the importance of innovative solutions in combating climate change.

By recognizing non-standard coconuts as a viable feedstock for SAF, ICAO paves the way for increased adoption of renewable energy sources in aviation, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and mitigating the environmental impact of air travel. This development underscores the commitment of stakeholders to advance sustainable practices in the aviation industry, fostering a greener and more resilient future for air transportation.

The release of the revised positive list on non-standard coconuts for SAF reflects a collaborative effort between governments, international organizations, and industry stakeholders to promote environmental sustainability while supporting economic development in coconut-producing regions. This initiative sets a precedent for future collaborations aimed at addressing the dual challenges of climate change and aviation emissions on a global scale.

As the aviation industry continues to prioritize sustainability, initiatives like the revised positive list on non-standard coconuts serve as a testament to the collective commitment to building a more environmentally responsible aviation sector. With ongoing support and collaboration, adopting sustainable aviation fuels derived from renewable sources is poised to accelerate, driving progress towards a more sustainable and resilient aviation industry worldwide.
