Merging both airport and airline long term sustainability visons to reduce environmental impacts.
14:00 - 14:45Virtual Panel: How to control risks introduced by new sustainable technologies, hydrogen case study
The use of hydrogen as a primary source of power is one of the most promising technological enablers on the path towards sustainable aviation. Introduction of hydrogen-based technologies will bring new risks in aircraft design, production, operation, maintenance and recycling. The panel will discuss these risks, their impact throughout the aviation ecosystem and how the aviation industry can collaborate and draw from other industries to control them.
14:45 - 15:50Virtual Panel: Are Sustainable Fuels Economically Viable?
Since the COVID-19 oil crash, synthetic sustainable fuels have become 3-5 times more expensive than traditional jet fossil fuels. With over 80% of flights being grounded, airlines are forced to make cutbacks to reduce costs, which now poses the question, are sustainable aviation fuels a viable option for airlines? This virtual panel will explore the true costs and practicality of sustainable aviation fuels.
