The aviation industry requires effective and sustainable solutions to meet its commitments – at national and international level – in a global effort to reduce the impacts of climate change.
With the implementation of CORSIA, the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation, over 85% of global aviation activity will be working to limit carbon emissions through improved technology and operations, as well as the use of carbon offsets and alternative fuels.
Alternative aviation fuels, which can deliver significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while requiring no changes to existing aircraft and infrastructure, offer one of the most effective and immediate solutions to an industry looking to decarbonise rapidly.
Such fuels have the potential to offer both GHG reductions and a credible approach to achieving sustainable development goals, and so could deliver key emissions savings to the aviation industry – without compromising social development and environmental protection.
However, ensuring that fuels produced from a range of feedstocks including...
