Event description


Join us in a series of lunchtime talks to highlight the research areas key to supporting the creation of the UK sustainable aviation fuel supply chain.

Running on the first Friday of the month, you will hear from a selection of themed talks followed by an opportunity to ask questions and stimulate dialogue. Aimed at businesses, researchers, policy makers and investors, the research programme will support the development of collaborations and inform stakeholders of UK's innovative research capability.

The project aims to produce low carbon jet fuels through the integration of novel technologies by taking CO2, wood pellet biomass and a combination of co-electrolysis (EP/N009924/1). The key objectives of WP5 (Policy, Public Engagement and Regulation) is to design multi-criteria decision making analysis (MCDA)-based frameworks to evaluate competing alternative jet fuel (AJF) production technologies. Our methodology explicitly takes different stakeholders’ perspectives and a wide range of criteria (e.g., financial, environmental, technical and social aspects) into account. We highlight key barriers that tend to affect the commercial development, deployment and consumption of AJFs; and how policy can be shaped to foster the development of this new industry as well as to reduce aviation emissions.
