Summary

​Results of the SWAFEA major European study on alternative fuels for aviation presented in Toulouse
The conference was held to outline the results of the major two-year feasibility and impact assessment SWAFEA study initiated by the European Commission on alternative aviation fuels.
Contributors to the study pointed out the strong challenges posed if biofuels are to play an important role in helping meet industry emissions reduction targets, identifying sustainability, biomass availability and investment as key obstacles to be overcome.
“Biofuels can contribute to aviation emission reductions and diversification of supply,” said Philippe Novelli, of French aerospace research institution ONERA and coordinator of the SWAFEA (Sustainable Way for Alternative Fuels and Energy for Aviation) project. “But significant reductions will take time and require a determined effort. The introduction of biofuels must start quickly.”
