Fossile free aviation for more sustainable travels
Aviation accounts for around five per cent of Sweden’s total carbon dioxide emissions. The Swedish aviation strategy states that aviation shall contribute to the goal of Sweden becoming one of the world’s first fossil-free welfare states. To achieve this requires both technical and business innovation, and RISE is currently pursuing several research projects that in various ways contribute to the changeover to fossil-free aviation. In the short and medium term, bio-jet fuel can contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from aviation. In the long term, electric aviation will be a necessary complement.
