  • Are all renewable aviation fuels equally sustainable?

    Opinion | Promoted content 31-08-2020

    A recent European Commission inception impact assessment on “ReFuelEU Aviation” presents ideas about a future EU law to promote renewable aviation fuels, labelled as “Sustainable” Aviation Fuels (SAF). These offer a legitimate way to reduce GHG emissions and deserve our …

  • We won’t get there without sustainable biofuels

    Opinion 17-07-2020

    It is common knowledge by now: transport is and stays a big greenhouse gas (GHG) emitter in the EU and worldwide. It accounted for 27% of EU-28 total emissions in 2017, and the sector runs almost entirely on fossil fuel. David Chiaramonti and Giacomo Talluri explain how this can be curbed.

  • Greener aviation set for end-of-year lift
