Aiming a low carbon future

• IATA has committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions from their operations by 2050 in line with Paris agreement

• SAF is made from sustainable resources and can be blended with fossil jet fuel to reduce emissions

• Adoption of SAF contributing around 65% of reduction in emissions

New Delhi: Tata Group Airlines-- Air India, AirAsia India and Vistara-- joined hands with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and Indian Institute of Petroleum (IIP) on Thursday to collaborate and work together on the research, development and deployment of sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs).

The focus of the partnership is the exploration of Single Reactor HEFA Technology for Drop-in liquid Sustainable Aviation and Automotive Fuel (DILSAAF). The MoU also outlines the intent of the signatories to work together in a variety of other areas related to sustainable aviation.

The impact of continued use of petroleum-derived fuel for aviation is considerable with greenhouse gas and carbon emissions being of significant concern across the globe. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions from their operations by 2050 in line with the objectives of the Paris agreement to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

According to IATA, the aviation industry's net-zero carbon emissions target is focused on delivering maximum reduction in emissions at source, with the adoption of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) contributing around 65 per cent of the reduction in emissions, in addition to innovative new propulsion technologies, and other efficiency improvements.

Sustainable Aviation Fuel is made from sustainable resources, such as forestry and agricultural waste and used cooking oil and can be blended with fossil jet fuel to reduce emissions. It is a 'drop-in' fuel, meaning it can be added with no changes needed to the aircraft.

CSIR - Indian Institute of Petroleum is located at Dehradun and dedicated to R&D in the hydrocarbon sector. Its charter is to provide competitive and sustainable technologies and products to meet the requirements of the ever-growing energy sector and develop capacity and capability in new energy areas such as bio, hydrogen and solar energy and their innovative combination.
