Sustainabile Aviation Fuels have gained considerable momentum in the aviation industry in recent times, due to their potential as a drop-in replacement for conventional fossil aviation fuels. Interest is also supported by the lack of sustainable alternatives with hydrogen or electric powered aircraft deemed unfeasbile and not financially viable in the short term. The European Union have underlined their focus on Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) through the Green Deal and underpinned this with clear numbers and mandates in the ReFuelEU Aviation draft regulations. What, though, exactly does the draft regulation mean and what impact could it have on the SAF market in the coming years? Find out more here.
Without Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), a short-term reduction of CO2 emissions in aviation is not feasible. The European Green Deal and the subsequent Fit for 55 package therefore focuses on the increased use of biofuels in aviation. In the framework of these packages, the raw materials used in production are generally classified under the term ‘generations’ But what precisely is the meaning behind this classification? Find out more about the different feedstocks and future trends.
In modern aviation, the awareness of the importance of sustainability and environmental protection is increasing. With growing passenger numbers, high air freight volumes and rising oil prices, alternatives to fossil jet fuel and solutions for reducing CO2 emissions are increasingly in demand. Alternative fuels, so-called Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF), are a crucial step towards climate-neutral air travel. Learn more about the different technical solutions and the approaches that are already a reality.
One of the most important challenges of our time is climate protection and the development of sustainable products for the benefit of all society. At Haltermann Carless, we have anchored this topic in our corporate strategy and are working to create environmentally sound products, processes and solutions to provide both tangible value and environmental benefits to our customers. In the following article, you can read about how Haltermann Carless products already contribute to CO2 reduction and the work we are doing to drive the development of new sustainable projects.
Haltermann Carless' production site in Speyer has a long history and a promising future. This is due to its strategically favourable location in the heart of Europe, a strong product portfolio, permanent investments in modern technologies and committed employees. The manufacturing plant, which has been in operation since July 1965, has constantly advanced and embraced future trends. At the time of its foundation, modern technologies such as valve bottoms or air-cooled condensation were used and a biological wastewater treatment plant was put into operation. Now the production site is again taking important steps towards the future: for more sustainability and clear customer added value.
The transportation sector is changing - and what has long been an essential part of research and development in the automotive sector is now increasingly finding its way into aviation: sustainable solutions to reduce CO2 emissions. Alternative fuels, so-called Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF), play an important role in this context and are a significant driver for GHG emission reduction in aviation. Read here how tangible this forward-looking topic already is and the pioneering role that Haltermann Carless is playing.
