Lignin-to-jet fuel technologies

Aviation is one of the fastest growing transport sectors and this trend will continue in the coming years. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), global aviation is expected to grow by 5% annually in the period up to 2030. Currently, petroleum derived liquid fuels are the main energy carrier in the aviation sector. Due to different environmental and economic concerns there is a need for the sustainable supply of aviation fuels.

The aviation industry considers aviation biofuels to be one of the primary means to reduce the carbon footprint of the industry. In this context, the BIOREFLY project will develop lignin-to-jet fuel technologies and will also produce such bio fuels. The sustainable supply chain will be demonstrated, environmental and socio-economic impacts will be assessed and results gathered from tests in engines will be disseminated to relevant stakeholders.
