Coordinating research and innovation of jet and other sustainable aviation fuel

Objective

For a number of ecologic and economic reasons, the aviation industry is currently in great need for alternative fuels. Highly ambitious goals for the reduction of the sector’s overall greenhouse gas emissions set from industry and politics imply sustainable alternative fuels as major contribution, and require research and innovation efforts in order to develop pathways for an economically feasible large-scale production of such fuels for aviation.
The project CORE-JetFuel will evaluate the research and innovation “landscape” in order to develop and implement a strategy for sharing information, for coordinating initiatives, projects and results and to identify needs in research, standardisation, innovation/deployment, and policy measures at European level. Bottlenecks of research and innovation will be identified and, where appropriate, recommendations for the European Commission will be elaborated with respect to re-orientation and re-definition of priorities in the funding strategy.
The consortium will cover the entire alternative fuel production chain in four domains: Feedstocks and sustainability; conversion technologies and radical concepts; technical compatibility, certification and deployment; policies, incentives and regulation. CORE-JetFuel will ensure cooperation with other European, international and national initiatives and with the key stakeholders in the field. The consortium combines the competencies of the Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR), SENASA, Bauhaus Luftfahrt (BHL), WIP , IFP, EADS Innovation Works and numerous external experts from science, industry and politics.
The expected benefits are enhanced knowledge of decision makers, support for maintaining coherent research policies and the promotion of a better understanding of future investments in aviation fuel research and innovation, in alignment with the ACARE Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) as well as with the ATAG goals of future emission reduction in aviation.
