The aviation sector is one of the principal sources of man-made greenhouse gas emissions, contributing over 2% of global emissions – more than 90% of the world’s countries. As air traffic levels continue to rise, the required longevity of airline fleets rules out engineering solutions for emission mitigation. Thus, at present, the only significant available solution to the aviation emissions is biofuels. The sector has been held back in the past by stringent performance requirements and a lack of market presence, but is now picking up steam.
