With emissions reductions and fuel security in mind, Australia and New Zealand's main aviation players approached the CSIRO’s Energy Transformed Flagship to work collaboratively on a study that would help plan a sustainable future for aviation fuels.
The report states “Australia and New Zealand are in a strong position with respect to potential bio-derived fuel production.” Furthermore, it is “estimated that within one decade the region has the potential to supply almost half of the local aviation sector’s fuel needs from biomass”.
Petrochemical refineries can blend Licella’s bio-crude into the refining process by blending it with petroleum crude oil to become jet fuel. Please click here to view the full report.
Licella is an Australian-based company that has developed a unique process to transform renewable woody-waste materials into an array of biofuels.
The Licella process has been running at our pilot plant at Somersby (just north of Sydney), Australia for over 3 years.
