Sustainability in Aviation (Part 2) – Greener Aviation and Sustainable Fuels

Decarbonizing aviation is critical to solving the climate crisis and will become increasingly critical in the coming decades.

There is a great deal of talk about the options that will power future commercial aircraft.

Sustainable Air Fuels (SAF) offers a non-conventional (fossil-derived) aviation fuel. Airlines may use any SAF that meets the technical certification criteria, however those certifications do not guarantee sustainability; they only describe the physical properties of the fuel itself. There are multiple reasons that an airline should seek to use SAF that has also been certified sustainable as part of a broader decarbonisation process.

There is growing optimism in some corners of the industry, however, that hydrogen may provide a potential answer. The lightest and most abundant element in the universe, hydrogen offers nearly three times the specific energy of gasoline. It can also be produced as a clean fuel through renewable resources.

Hybrid and Electric Aircraft are also at the forefront of making aviation sustainable with a number of airlines ordering electric or hybrid aircraft to help meet environmental targets.

In this webinar we review the alternative fuel options that will help drive the aviation industry to decarbonise, to be cleaner and greener and meet the environmental challenges.
