Sustainable aviation fuels for aviation decarbonization
Mohamed Pourkashanian OBE – University of Sheffield, UK
Sébastien Dupraz, researcher, BRGM, France
Aviation sector is currently responsible of about 2% of global CO2 emissions and a deep decarbonization of this sector is one of the key issues on energy transition. In this field, sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) - produced from biomass by means of biological processes or from green hydrogen and captured CO2 through synthesis processes - represent the main pathway towards carbon neutrality in commercial aviation.
This webinar provides an overview of SAF production technologies, highlighting the perspectives and the main challenges of their developments.
