The study assesses to what extent the production and use of advanced sustainable jet fuel may contribute to GHG reduction and mitigation, and identifies the commercial potential for initiating and scaling up advanced sustainable jet fuel production at a Nordic level. The report explores as well on how to most efficiently use the available Nordic know-how, feedstock and production facilities. The report draws on the latest available reports and statistics, as well as interviews with stakeholders and experts across the Nordic countries, concludes on identifying the most matured technologies, the Nordic opportunities and challenges, and ideas to mitigate the barriers within the Nordic private and public sectors.



Jet fuel Demand and price sensitivity

The market for sustainable jet fuel alternative has not developed by itself especially due to the existing price differential between available biofuels and fossil-based jet A-1. Sustainable jet fuel could be produced at a price of EUR 0.8–2.2/liter, dependent on choice of pathway and the feedstock-to-fuel efficiency (see sections 9.2 to 9.4 for more details on the cost estimates). Compared to a fossil reference of EUR 0.25/liter, the cost of sustainable jet fuel falls within a price range that is roughly 3–9 times higher than conventional jet A-1.
