Techno-economic assessment of process routes for naphthalenes control in petroleum jet fuel
Investigates two processes to reduce the concentration of naphthalenes in fossil jet fuel to abate contrails: hydrotreating and extractive distillation
A roadmap for decarbonizing California in-state aviation emissions
Assesses how policies could increase the contribution of sustainable aviation fuel and zero-emission planes to the state’s decarbonization efforts
ICAO’s 2050 net-zero CO2 goal for international aviation
Analyzes the ICAO commitment to creating a global net-zero CO2 aviation sector by 2050
Aviation climate finance using a global frequent flying levy
Analyzes the potential of a tax on individuals who fly often to raise revenue for the decarbonization of aviation
Considerations for the ReFuelEU aviation trilogue
Assesses the differences between the original ReFuelEU proposal and European Parliament and Council amendments, and identifies which would reduce GHG and increase compliance options
Performance analysis of regional electric aircraft
Assesses the potential contribution of three regional-scale electric aircraft concepts for reducing CO2 emissions from aviation.
Vision 2050: Aligning aviation with the Paris Agreement
Analyzes scenarios under which the aviation sector could achieve emissions reductions in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Leveraging EU policies and climate ambition to close the cost gap between conventional and sustainable aviation fuels
Argues that the EU’s new “Fit for 55” proposals could be leveraged to steer more revenue toward development of sustainable aviation fuels, and to discourage use of fossil jet fuel.
Current and future cost of e-kerosene in the United States and Europe
Analyzes the potential of e-kerosene for decarbonizing the aviation sector, and finds that while expensive, the cost of e-kerosene will decline over time, and if subsidized, could become a viable sustainable aviation fuel.
Environmental limits on supersonic aircraft in 2035
Examines the noise and climate impacts of re-introducing supersonic aircraft aviation and finds them to be nearly prohibitive obstacles
