We are a world expert on the economics and the environmental performance of sustainable aviation fuels

For more than a decade we have been conducting research to help make aviation greener. Our core  area of research is sustainable aviation fuels, in particular with regard to assessments on their economic and environmental viability (using e.g. Techno-Economic Assessments and Life Cycle Assessments) and with regard to designing methods to appropriately account for those fuels in international climate regulation. As such, we have been serving since 2016 as a Task-lead for the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Alternative Fuels Task Force/Fuels Task Group.
