Qatar Airways, Qatar Science and Technology Park and Qatar Petroleum are to jointly carry out engineering and economic analysis for the development of sustainable aviation biofuel, with support from Airbus. Seven months ago, together with US-based Verno Systems, the companies embarked on a feasibility study on sustainable biomass-to-liquid (BTL) jet fuel and possible by-products such as biodiesel. This study looked at all available bio feed stocks that would not affect the food or fresh water supply chain. It also looked at existing and future production technologies with a viability analysis. These activities will be built on, and motivated by, the objective of executing advanced biofuel projects - with Qatar Airways as a dedicated end-user.
