Decarbonising aviation: Assessing the options available

The aviation sector remains one of the crucial industries in which to decarbonise if the world is to transition to a greener future. However, in an ever-increasingly crowded market, what are some of the best solutions that can decarbonise this sector?

Is it hydrogen? Or does sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) or battery-electric hold the answer to this vital question?

SAF in particular is recognised as a short-term solution to initially bring down the carbon emissions associated with the aviation industry. These thoughts are echoed by Taras Wankewycz, CEO and co-founder of H3 Dynamics, who exclusively told H2 View, “The easiest route and the shortest route I would say right now for aviation in general is do slight modifications which is sustainable aviation fuels and even hydrogen combustion. 

“They’re using kind of a similar type of reactor engine that kerosene is using so it’s a small, I would say it’s a modification and the aircraft doesn’t need to transform it. So it’s maybe a near term approach. And that’s why SAF is in the headlines because it’s just an easier switch than something that’s too futuristic.”
