Airlines must use their market power to ensure biofuels meet the highest sustainability standards, says NRDC

By |February 23rd, 2015|Aviation, CSR|0 Comments|

An evaluation by US NGO Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) of sustainability standards followed by airlines using or intending to use biofuels finds the industry has made great strides in adopting such fuels with some airlines doing better than others on sustainability issues. This is the second annual report by NRDC on aviation biofuels but the first to name and score airlines on an individual basis according to a set of sustainability criteria. Airlines were scored on their participation in industry initiatives to promote sustainability certification, public commitments in sourcing, and the monitoring and disclosure of important sustainability metrics.

GE Joins Sustainable Bioenergy Research Consortium

By |January 29th, 2015|Aviation, Supply-chain initiatives|0 Comments|

GE has become the latest in a number of high-profile companies to join the Sustainable Bioenergy Research Consortium (SBRC). The consortium now consists of Masdar Institute, GE, Etihad Airways, Boeing, Honeywell UOP, and Safran. The aim of this consortium is the development and support of technologies/approaches to producing “sustainable bioenergy” — which is to say (for the most part), aviation industry efforts to develop “next-gen” fuels. The SBRC was founded by The Masdar Institute of Science & Technology and a number of the other current members of the consortium.

Contract awarded for UAE pilot project that will use desert plants and seawater to produce jet biofuel

By |January 29th, 2015|Supply-chain initiatives|0 Comments|

AA consortium of aviation, biofuel and research interests have awarded a contract to construct the world’s first bioenergy pilot project that will use desert land and seawater to produce sustainable aviation fuel in the United Arab Emirates. The project, which is expected to be operational by late summer, is based on research carried out at the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology into using coastal seawater to raise fish and shrimp for food, whose nutrient-rich wastewater then fertilises oil-rich halophyte plants that can be harvested for aviation biofuel production. The Sustainable Bioenergy Research Consortium (SBRC) was founded by Masdar, […]

Sustainable jet fuels are produced from sustainable feedstocks like waste streams and non-food energy crops.

These fuels offer the single largest opportunity to reduce emissions, while ensuring long term fuel security for the aviation sector.

Sustainable jet fuel blends can be referred to as ‘drop-in’ fuels, because they have the ability to be used without any changes made to the infrastructure, such as distribution and engine fuel systems.
What are Sustainable Jet Fuels?
The aviation industry is the world’s fasted growing transport sector and responsible for approximately 2,5 % of the global manmade CO2 emissions. Even with efficiency measures taken, this figure is expected to rise to 4 – 4.5 per cent by 2050, without any mitigation.

One of the biggest challenges in reducing this impact is to look for solutions that preserve the sectors social benefits, while maintaining its growth.

99% of an airline’s emissions comes from the combustion of jet fuel. Energy sources like solar, electric and hydrogen do not offer an alternative as aviation will be relying on high density liquid energy carriers for the coming decades. Therefore, sustainable jet fuels are viewed as the best opportunity to reduce carbon emissions.

For more information on Sustainable jet fuel, you can read SkyNRG’s White Paper on Sustainable Jet Fuel.
Rationale for Sustainable Jet fuel
In every decision that we make, we follow the vision on sustainable fuels, set by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in the Energy Vision 2050.:

Sustainable biofuels:
• Exhibit minimal impact on biodiversity
• Meet a sustainability standard with respect to land, water, and energy use
• Do not displace or compete with food crops
• Provide a positive socioeconomic impact.

To ensure the sustainability of our fuels, we have established various measures and important partnerships:

SkyNRG has installed an independent Sustainability Board, consisting of the Dutch wing of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF-NL), Solidaridad and the Copernicus Institute of the University of Utrecht that advises us on all feedstock and technology decisions.

SkyNRG is a member of the Roundtable of Sustainable Biomaterials.

We are in continuous dialogue with local and global NGOs to make sure we do not miss important issues in respect to the feedstock we w(want to) use and fuel we make
