Advances in Large Scale Gasification
Implementing Advanced Gasification Commercially as Part Of an Integrated Approach to Sustainable Aviation Fuels From Biomass and Waste(part 2)
Short Introductive summary
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is critical to the decarbonisation of one of the most challenging sectors of society. Aviation is challenging to decarbonise because liquid hydrocarbon fuel systems offer a high constant energy for propulsion, well suited to long distance flight and unmatched by current and foreseeable batteries. Aircraft, engine and operational improvements can all help, but SAF offers the only realistic prospect for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions to zero for a long-haul flight - making it indispensable in a net zero world. SAF is already approved for use at up to 50% in all commercial aircraft, and thus can begin decarbonising aviation immediately, without any changes to aircraft or airport infrastructure.
