Climate change is a pressing global challenge and aviation is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
The path to sustainable aviation is filled with obstacles, including feedstock availability, technological hurdles and evolving regulations that often lag behind innovation.
To tackle these challenges effectively, a three-pronged approach is essential. First, localised logistic systems are crucial for converting scattered biomass waste into viable feedstock. Second, technological innovations are needed to enable feedstock flexibility in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production. Finally, global coordination is vital, involving not just airlines and airports, but also feedstock providers, tech innovators, governments, and consumers to build a resilient SAF value chain.
