The production of liquid fuels derived from biomass or hydrogen can allow synergy between the decarbonization goals of aviation and shipping. This is the conclusion of the study “Synergies between the decarbonization goals between the maritime and aviation sectors.” The study was coordinated by professors Alexandre Szklo and Roberto Schaeffer, from Coppe/UFRJ, and requested by the Institute for Climate and Society (iCS)
“Only energy efficiency and operational measures, although necessary, do not meet the goals for 2050. Therefore, the importance of the so-called drop-in fuels, which are those that are adjustable and adaptable to current logistics and motorization,” explains Alexandre Szklo.
The study was conducted by Cenergia, which is a laboratory linked to the Energy Planning Program (PPE) of Coppe/UFRJ, and involved four professors (Szklo, Schaeffer, Joana Portugal Pereira and Pedro Rochedo) and five PPE doctoral students (Clarissa Bergman, Eduardo Müller-Casseres, Francielle Carvalho, Pedro Luis Maia and Rebecca Draeger). The conclusions were presented at three seminars, promoted by iCS, on June 24, September 3 and October 28, 2021. Read more details about the study at the link: https://bit.ly/3BWvv42
