Virgin`s announcement of completing the first commercial flight that uses 100% sustainable aviation fuel is clearly a great headline. And whilst the claim of 100% sustainable isn`t 100% correct - strictly speaking as they use 88 percent HEFA fuel and 12 percent “synthetic aromatic kerosene" - it does highlight the fact that aviation is another high visibility sector which needs to look at its future strategy to reduce emissions.
We at Hyperion are working with a lot of tech start ups including pioneers in the “clean aviation” space. Whilst the breakthrough in terms of commercial viability of clean business models in the aviation fuel space hasn`t been reached yet, this is another area we need to talk in the future.
