Biofuels for aviation:
Feedstocks, Technology and Implementation presents issues related to research and use of biofuels for aviation, such as policy, markets, certification and performance requirements, life cycle assessment and economic and technical barriers to their full implementation.
Readers involved in the bioenergy and aviation sectors - research, planning or policy development activities - will benefit from this comprehensive overview.
The aviation industry's commitment to reducing GHG emissions together with rising oil prices has led to the need for renewable and affordable energy sources tailored to the very specific needs of this sector.
As jet engines cannot be easily electrified, the most viable option is to use biofuels.
However, aviation is a type of transport for which traditional biofuels, such as bioethanol and biodiesel, do not meet the main fuel needs.
Therefore, different solutions to this situation are being researched and tested around the world, making navigation in this scenario particularly difficult.
This book guides readers through this intricate topic, updating them on their current status and future perspectives from both an academic and an industry perspective.
In the science and technology chapters, the technical aspects of the most promising and currently proven technology under development are explored in greater depth, as well as their respective raw materials and the use of additives to adapt them to certain specifications.
Conversion processes such as hydrotreatment, synthetic biology, pyrolysis, hydrothermal liquefaction and Fisher-Tropsch are explored and their results evaluated to determine their current and future viability.
It presents the current state of biofuels in the aviation sector, including the technologies currently in use and the most promising technologies of the future, their production processes and their feasibility.
It explains the requirements for the certification and performance of aviation fuels and how they can be achieved using biofuels.
It explores economic and political issues, as well as life cycle assessment, a comparative techno-economic analysis of promising technologies and a roadmap for the future.
It explores conversion processes such as hydrotreatment, synthetic biology, pyrolysis, hydrothermal liquefaction and Fisher-Tropsc.
