ASSESSMENT ON ALTERNATIVE AVIATION FUELS DEVELOPMENT

Project description

Alternative aviation fuel research

To fulfil the 2015 Paris Agreement goals, the aviation industry should adopt solutions to reduce emissions. Sustainable organic-origin fuels whose life cycle carbon footprint is smaller than the fossil-origin kerosene are widely envisaged as the only short-medium term solution for the aviation industry. The past decade has seen a lot of research and experiments on organic products, with excellent results. However, the new products are submitted to strict certification procedures while their production is costly, with results that cannot compete economically with fossil kerosene at the present oil prices. The EU-funded ALTERNATE project is a Chinese-EU proposal that aims to identify the possibilities for extensive sustainable fuel use in aviation considering new technical areas and production procedures.
