Virgin Atlantic is set to mark a significant milestone with its VS100 flight, a world-first transatlantic 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) flight scheduled for 28 November 2023. The flight aims to demonstrate the viability of SAF as a sustainable alternative to conventional jet fuel. By harnessing SAF, industries could significantly reduce their carbon footprint, paving the way for sustainable long-haul travel and setting new environmental standards.
In a huge stride toward a greener future for aviation, GE Aerospace researchers are set to redefine the norms of flight.
Google is taking action to help the world reduce transportation and energy emissions. The company has made a commitment to developing technology to help individuals, organizations, and cities make informed choices that will contribute to reducing global emissions. Here, we look at those technologies in detail.
Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas and is the second-largest contributor to climate warming after carbon dioxide.
A Technology Innovation Partnership for Net Zero Aviation in the South West has been launched.
International Airlines Group (IAG), the parent company of Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia, Vueling and LEVEL —has today announced an investment into Nova Pangaea Technologies (NPT), an innovative Teesside-based cleantech company whose technology is a crucial pathway to the production of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
PowerCell has signed a follow-up order with European aviation startup for deliveries of fuel cell systems to aircraft. The order value is SEK 40 million and deliveries will take place in 2023 and 2024.
Aviation's huge carbon footprint could shrink significantly with electrification. To date, however, only small all-electric planes have gotten off the ground. Their electric motors generate hundreds of kilowatts of power. To electrify larger, heavier jets, such as commercial airliners, megawatt-scale motors are required.
With electric road vehicles now more commonplace than ever, it has become even more pressing to find environmentally compatible ways to transport people and goods through the skies in an attempt to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
Navigator Terminals and alfanar will enter a joint Front-End-Engineering-Design (FEED) study in 2023 to determine the key scope for the UK’s first Sustainable Aviation Fuel handling terminal that will be located on North Tees to transport feedstock and handle the production volumes from the innovative alfanar facility.
