International Council on Clean Transportation -- Notable Quote
International Council on Clean Transportation,

"With strong policy actions, it is possible to reduce (India's) CO2 emissions to half the present level by 2050. This possibility is despite the travel demand more than doubling by then." -- International Council on Clean Transportation, Dec., 2021, www.theicct.org

Ryanair Supports Future SAF Use (Int'l. Report)
Ryanair
Date: 2021-12-01
Irish low-cost air carrier Ryanair reports it has pledged to support the development of SAF to promote a carbon-neutral future and, to that end, aims to power 12.5 pct of its flights using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by 2030.

As previously reported, the airline has joined the Fueling Flight Initiative as part of its pledge to turn the blue airline green. The Fuelling Flight initiative was convened by the European Climate Foundation (ECF) and ClimateWorks Foundation (CWF) with technical advice from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT).

EU Aviation, NGOs Concur on SAF Climate Impact (Int'l.)
European Climate Foundation, SAF, Sustainable Aviation Fuel, ClimateWorks Foundation
Date: 2021-01-18
As the European Union is about to unveil new targets for sustainable aviation fuel in 2021, a group of major European aviation companies, research and environmental groups have made recommendations on the sustainability aspects of the EU's policy design to support Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) and are calling for a more stringent policy approach to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and the aviation sector's climate impact. The Fueling Flight Initiative was convened by the European Climate Foundation (ECF) and ClimateWorks Foundation (CWF) to provide recommendations on the sustainability aspects of the EU's policy design to support Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF). Technical advice was provided by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT). A key element of the Fueling Flight Initiative is a regulatory framework that guarantees future-proof sustainability requirements. This cornerstone is needed to build-up production capacity and organise feedstock value chains while avoiding investments that either fail to deliver emission reductions or cause unintended environmental impacts.

Maritime Shipping's Global Carbon Emissions Increase (Int'l.)
IMO,International Council on Clean Transportation
Date: 2020-08-10
In a recently released report, the London-headquartered International Maritime Organization (IMO) notes that carbon emissions from shipping -- which handles roughly 90 pct of world trade -- rose in the six-year period to 2018 and accounted for 2.89 pct of the world's CO2.

According to the study, CO2 emissions grew to 1,056 million tonnes in 2018 versus 962 million tonnes in 2012.

The report also noted emissions in 2020 and 2021 would be significantly lower due to the impact of COVID-19 and that emissions over the next decades may be a few percent lower than projected depending on the recovery trajectory.

The non-profit International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) said the growth of shipping was outpacing efficiency improvements and by 2050 emissions from the industry were projected to be up to 130 pct higher than 2008 levels.

LNG Marine Fuel Misses the Boat on GHG Emission (Ind. Report)
International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT)
Date: 2020-02-21
A new report just released by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) concludes that using LNG for maritime bunkers (martine fuel) may have little positive impact on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The ICCT analysis compares LNG, marine gas oil, very low sulphur fuel oil and heavy fuel oil used in marine engines in the LNG tanker and cruise sectors. However, results varied widely depending on engine technology. High-pressure dual fuel (HPDF) machinery came out top but the ICCT estimates that only 90 of the 750-plus LNG-fuelled ships in service use these engines. Moreover, using a 20-year global warming potential model and taking into account upstream emissions, combustion emissions and methane slip, there is no climate benefit from using LNG, regardless of engine technology, the analysis concludes.

The ICCT's findings come as a serious blow to those who have advocated LNG as an interim fuel on the path to low- and zero-carbon propulsion technologies.

Aviation Emissions Rising Faster Than Predicted (Int'l Report)
International Council on Clean Transportation
Date: 2019-09-20
According to new analysis from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), commercial aviation emissions have increased by one-third since 2013 -- faster than aviation industry predictions and equivalent to the construction of 50 new coal power plants over the last five years.

In 2018, emissions from passenger and cargo aircraft totaled 918 million metric tonnes (MMT), or 2.4 per cent of global emissions.

The US, China, the UK, Japan, and the United Arab Emirates had the highest emissions from passenger aviation, while less developed countries accounted for just 10 pctof all emissions.
