The European Union and the Japan Science and Technology Agency awards 2.9M€ to 4AiCRAFT “Air Carbon Recycling for Aviation Fuel Technology”, for helping the aviation sector to reach the EU 2050 climate-neutrality targets. 4AirCRAFT, a H2020 funded project in International Cooperation with Japan for Research and Innovation on alternative renewable fuels, offers a novel cascade reactor for sustainable aviation fuel synthesised from H2 and CO2. The conversion to high-density hydrocarbons will be achieved at mild conditions and based on an intensified cascade reactor. Key to the process is the combination of highly efficient electro-, chemo- and bio- catalysts. Synergy between hybrid catalysts which are selectively embedded within advanced porous carriers including hierarchical scaffolds are expected to raise selectivity and energy efficiency. In this project the technology readiness level is raised from TRL 2 to 3.
