Hydrogen and Sustainable Aviation Fuel for Air Travel – Decarbonization
Based on the report found on the website of International Council on Clean Transportation , it is clear that the race to decarbonize transportation is heating up, and the aviation industry is joining the sprint. Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) offers a dramatic drop in emissions compared to traditional jet fuel.
Some of the key things to be noted as per the report are as follows
- Biofuels & Power-to-Liquids (PtL): Sustainable fuel alternatives already in use & development, reducing carbon footprint and co-producing fuels for other sectors.
- Hydrogen: Zero-emission future with challenges in storage. Potential for short flights and drones.
- Net Zero Tech Team: Analyzing cost & emissions to identify best sustainable fuel options.
- Industry Projects: Developing hydrogen-powered aircraft for niche markets, paving the way for wider adoption.
