Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is a promising technology to decarbonize the aviation sector and substitute the fossil-based fuels which are causing airplanes to emit 2% of the global CO2 emissions. Due to their importance, EUBCE will feature multiple presentations dedicated to SAF and advanced biofuels throughout its conference programme.

In this workshop, international experts from companies and research institutions will present the state of the SAF market and the most recent EU-funded research and innovation actions which are aiming to develop SAF products from a variety of biomass sources and with innovative bioconversion routes.

SkyNRG will present the findings of their updated market outlook for SAF, which evaluated the likelihood of achieving the volumes of SAF established by the EU aviation fuels blending mandate towards 2030, the requirements for capacity scale-up in the long term, and the various scenarios impacting the realization of this mandate.

The Bio4A project aims to test the logistic chain of advanced sustainable aviation biofuels under market condition as well as assessing the socio-economic sustainability of the entire supply chain. On top of this, the project will also investigate alternative feedstocks for SAF, namely drought resistant plant species grown on marginal Mediterranean lands, as well as evaluate the use of biochar to increase the fertility of the soil and stock carbon where the feedstock is grown.

The GreenFlexJET project delivers a blueprint for the production and distribution of a novel SAF technology from a diverse range of organic waste feedstocks. Its innovative process combines Sustainable Aviation through Biofuel Refining (SABR) technology for the refining of biodiesel from organic waste fats with the Thermo-Catalytic Reforming (TCR®) technology to produce biocrude oil from organic solid waste.

The FLITE project will design, build, and demonstrate a production facility that uses innovative ethanol-based Alcohol-to-Jet (ATJ) technology to produce synthetic paraffinic kerosene (SPK) from wasted-based ethanol with a significant GHG reduction relative to conventional jet.

The activities of GLAMOUR project are focused on an innovative integrated process converting the waste bio-based feedstock such as crude glycerol into aviation and marine diesel fuels, notably syngas. In the long term, GLAMOUR results could unlock low-cost feedstock, increase the biofuels production and generating a scalable business.
