The European Union (EU) is considering ambitious alternative fuel policies to decarbonize aviation. However, it is critical that policymakers set realistic sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) deployment goals that match the amount of fuel that could be made from available feedstock.
This working paper provides background and analysis to help identify how an effective policy for alternative aviation fuels could distinguish among fuels that can deliver deep greenhouse (GHG) reductions and those that cannot.
Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Shri L. G. Sahadevan, Chennai Vs Union of India & Others dated 19/08/2019 regarding use of alternative fuel in the state of Tamil Nadu. Action plan submitted through the Joint Transport Commissioner (Road and Safety), Tamil Nadu states that "under the present condition the pollution level is under control when compared to other States and enough LPG is available throughout the State and CNG is not available and a Committee has been constituted to study about the same and they are making the study."
Although brown macroalgae holds potential as an alternative feedstock, its utilization by conventional microbial platforms has been limited due to the inability to metabolize one of the principal sugars, alginate. Here, we isolate Vibrio sp. dhg, a fast-growing bacterium that can efficiently assimilate alginate.
Aviation is widely seen as the transport sector that is most difficult to decarbonize. One option to dramatically reduce emissions within the aviation sector is through the use of low-carbon alternative fuels.
This update provides details on the latest policy measures that six select European Union member states (Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom) are taking to support the deployment of advanced alternative fuels.
Order of the Supreme Court of India in the matter of M. C. Mehta Vs Union of India & Others dated 25/07/2018. The prayer in this application is to allow the National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd. to use alternate fuels such as Low Sulphur Heavy Stock (LSHS) along with Light Diesel Oil (LDO) in consonance with the order dated 13.12.2017 in substitution of furnace oil.
