Jet fuel from CO2 using sustainable and affordable processing technologies
Carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) technologies can play a significant role in easing the transition to renewable forms of energy while producing useful products like fuels or chemicals. They help economies reduce their emissions into the atmosphere without requiring an immediate change in energy source and related technologies to meet emission reductions goals and requirements. CCU technologies that use low-carbon energy sources keep the overall carbon footprint small. Current CCU technologies that use renewable electricity to produce fuels are relatively expensive and inefficient. The EU-funded eCOCO2 project will develop an intensified process to directly produce synthetic jet fuels from CO2 using renewable electricity and water steam. Benefits abound for the aerospace industry, the EU's leadership position on climate change and for the environment.
