Sustainable aviation fuels: perspective for aviation and example of technology transfer

For the energy-intensive long haul, sustainable synthetic fuels represent the most realistic alternative to conventional kerosene from today's perspective. For medium-haul flights, the fuels also known as SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) are a comparatively readily available technology. In this interview, Prof. Manfred Aigner, long-time director of the DLR Institute of Combustion Technology and an expert in the field of synthetic fuels, describes what electricity-based fuels are all about, what opportunities they offer, and what steps are necessary to make the technology fit for industrial use and to be able to produce large quantities. He also explains the successful path of technology transfer that sustainable fuels are taking from research to industrial application.
