Clean energies are key to enable the decarbonisation of aviation. Sustainable Aviation Fuels are one of the main pathways being explored and used today by the aviation community to reduce its impact on the global climate. Drop-in alternative fuels represents a major opportunity to reduce today's aviation carbon emissions and synthetic fuels are amongst these promising options. Also called power-to-liquid (PtL) or e-fuels, synthetic fuels are often considered a sustainable option in the long term, due to their low lifecycle emissions and other environmental impacts. Initiatives and uses have multiplied in recent years. However, they still represent a niche fuel type and major challenges need to be overcome in order to ensure their large scale development and deployment. These challenges include renewables energy production scaled-up, cost competitiveness and infrastructure widespread support.
