Created from advanced biofuels and renewable electro-fuels, sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) have the potential to significantly cut airline emissions.
They can be blended with kerosene and used in current aircraft without changes to the engine, making them a convenient way to decarbonise flights. But the high cost and limited supply of SAFs will need to be tackled for green jet fuels to truly take off.
Two of Europe’s leading aviation companies have argued that scaling up sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) is an essential step to decarbonise flying, as hydrogen is not yet ready to be adopted on a large scale.
The European Commission has confirmed that the upcoming ReFuelEU Aviation initiative will impose a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) blending mandate, with the EU executive suggesting it will apply to all flights taking off from European airports, regardless of whether their destination is inside the bloc.
As we stand at the eve of what many argue should be the “green recovery” of the economy, Business Aviation is advancing tangible emission reductions. Here is what you need to know about Business Aviation and sustainability, and why increasing …
