Using sludge waste to produce SAF
So often the sector is held up as the villain of the climate change story, when in reality it makes up only around 2-3% of carbon emissions worldwide.
However, the negative public perceptions remain, and the industry is one of those most determined to transform itself for the sake of building long-term business sustainability and resilience.
With the third largest aviation network in the world, the UK has a particular need to take action and demonstrate its commitment to change.
The industry and its stakeholders have come to a mutual agreement on carbon reduction that points only one way – low-carbon liquid fuels or sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), as the short and medium-term answer to making substantial progress on cutting carbon emissions ahead of the 2050 targets for a net-zero aviation sector.
Typically, SAF emits 80% less carbon over their lifecycle compared with conventional jet fuels.
There is no need for expensive investment in new aircraft or new infrastructure, SAF is a plug-and-play solution for the industry...
