  1. 1. Fields of Dreams: Scenarios to Produce Selected Biomass and Renewable Jet Fuels that Fulfill European Union Sustainability Criteria

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Torry van Slyke; [2019]
    Keywords : aviation biofuel; Camelina sativa; forestry residues; land use change; Renewable Energy Directive; sustainable development;

    Abstract : Aviation greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have risen faster than any other transport sector to double between 1990 and 2005. Such emissions from aviation could increase another 700 percent globally, and at least 150 percent in the European Union (EU), by 2050 due to continuously increasing consumer demand. READ MORE
