T&E says e-kerosene could reduce climate impact of aviation

June 21, 2022 |

In Belgium, E-kerosene, generated by combining green hydrogen (H2) and carbon dioxide (CO), has the potential to substantially reduce the climate impact of aviation. In its new forecast, T&E has analyzed the planned production capacity of 18 European e-kerosene manufacturers. By 2025, T&E finds that over 0.16 Mt of e-kerosene would be available for airlines every year. By 2030, this figure will reach over 1.83 million metric tons. This represents 3.65% of fuel demand in Europe and would save the equivalent of up to 5 Mt of CO2– or the emissions equivalent to 30,000 transatlantic flights.

T&E’s new analysis shows that the European e-kerosene market is ready for higher rates and faster scaling of this fuel, but that policy makers are not providing sufficient incentives to develop the production further. In order to decarbonize aviation fast and efficiently, e-kerosene needs to be made readily available for airlines to blend into their existing jet fuels.
