Flying Greener: Why synthetic jet fuels are the future of air travel

Flight has fundamentally connected people, cultures, and economies around the world. However, the aviation industry is one of the largest contributors to global carbon dioxide emissions. As a result, the industry is turning to viable methods, such as sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). This shift towards e-fuels has the potential to revolutionise the aviation industry, leading to reduced emissions, improved air quality and a more sustainable future for air travel.

NSW Grant E-Methanol

New grant to help develop aviation fuels

In the beginning of November 2022 Southern Green Gas welcomed the news that we would receive a $1 million grant from the NSW Environmental Trust. The funds will be used to develop a solar powered e-kerosene production module, based on our existing foundational green technology, to produce Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) which is in high demand. We send our gratitude to the Minister for Energy Matt Kean and the NSW Environmental Trust.

How SGGs Next Generation Carbon Capture Tech Works

The team at SGG learnt early on that what was accepted as the textbook method for using metal organic frameworks (MOFs) to extract carbon dioxide out of the air just wasn’t going to work in reality. This lead to the development of new technology headed by Rohan Gillespie and Professor Deanna D’Alessandro.

Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology

Southern Green Gas responding to global climate change

Published reports over recent years have shown us that climate change is already causing more frequent and more severe storms, floods, droughts, bushfires and other extreme weather events.

While it may not seem like much, the increase in temperature in Australia has caused an above natural variability in heat extremes and cold extremes. In the southwest region of Australia, we’ve lately seen reduced amounts of rainfall, rising sea levels and the retreat of shorelines. We’ve also seen an increase in extreme fire weather days and looking to the future, we can only expect to experience more changes.
