JSSI, Avfuel Help Clients Offset Aviation Emissions (Ind. Report)
Avfuel
Date: 2021-08-18
Chicago-headquartered Jet Support Services Inc. (JSSI) reports it is joining the industry push toward a more sustainable future by enabling clients to evaluate and reduce net carbon emissions by providing an online CO2 calculator to estimate emissions and facilitating an option to purchase carbon credits to offset emissions, and boost the adoption of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) through Ann Arbor, Michigan-based aviation fuels and services provider Avfuel Corporation.

Each carbon credit purchased will offset one metric ton of CO2 emissions through direct investment in a selection of carbon offset projects that meet the requirements of either the United Nations or the Gold Standard.

Avfuel calculates carbon credits based on an industry-standardized formula, measured in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the ISO 14064 Standard, and utilizes CO2 emission coefficients as assigned by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Repsol Joins Renewable Hydrogen Consortium, Reports Aviation Biofuels Production (Int'l.)
Repsol
Date: 2021-01-29
Repsol is reporting the H24All project consortium has presented an application for European Green Deal funding to develop Europe's first 100 MW alkaline electrolyzer plant which will be connected to a Repsol industrial site. The technology will be demonstrated in real operation according to end-users' needs and market requirements for low-carbon hydrogen production and to boost the use of renewable hydrogen by reducing the cost to close to €3/kg H2.

The 15 member consortium of research centers, material suppliers, engineering firms specializing in electrolyzers, auto makers and others, aims to pave the way for a new and competitive hydrogen industry based on European know-how through innovation by developing, building, operating, and demonstrating the sustainability of a 100 MW high-pressure alkaline electrolyzer. Consortium partners are from Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Spain, and Turkey.

In other Repsol news, on 21 Jan. the company reported production of the first 10,000 tonnes of aviation biofuel from biomass at its industrial complex in Tarragona in Spain. Additional aviation biofuel production is planned at the group's other industrial complexes in Spain. Last August the company reported production of its first batch of biofuel at the Puertollano Industrial Complex.

According to Spain's Integrated National Plan for Energy and Climate, biofuels currently represent the most widely available and used renewable technology in transportation. In certain sectors, such as aviation, biojet fuel produced from biomass or waste is the only existing alternative to fossil fuels and is included in the list of sustainable fuels, according to the Plan.
