Taiwan’s CPC to pilot SAF in 2025


Taiwanese state-owned petroleum, natural gas, and gasoline company CPC Corporation has announced plans to begin importing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in to the country in the first half of 2025 to help the local airline sector meet its net zero goals.

CPC will begin trials to supply SAF to national airlines at Taoyuan International Airport and Taipei Songshan Airport.

The East Asian country’s Civil Aviation Administration (CAA) has set indicative targets to use 5% SAF by 2030 in order to reduce the sector’s emissions.

As per reports, to ensure a reliable domestic supply of SAF, Taiwan’s CAA is actively working with relevant ministries, oil companies, airlines, and airports.

This collaboration focuses on understanding industry needs, facilitating facility certification, and implementing supportive measures for airlines and their aircraft.
