CEO Gunnar Holen and Chair of the Board Rolf Bruknapp have met a variety of Members of the European Parliament and representatives of the Commission in Brussels to provide insights on how Nordic Electrofuel enables the European and global aviation sector to move away from fossil fuels. Our project is a shelf-ready mature project and can be replicated at a large scale to advance the production of SAF across the EU.

The meetings consisted of valuable exchanges on how to decarbonise European aviation, and Nordic Electrofuel met with MEP Søren Gade, MEP Henna Virkkunen, Meeri Heinoen, Petra Söderqvist as well as Rachel Smith, Charlotte Nørlund-Matthiessen and Alessandro Polito from the European Commission.

Nordic Electrofuel look forward to continuing to make the aviation sector greener and enabling the EU in reaching its climate targets.
