Power-to-Liquid for Aviation: The Role of Government Policy


The objective is to enable the full cycle decarbonisation of the aviation sector in the short to medium term. There are many concepts being looked at that show real promise but the technology readiness level (TRL) is low and even if the TRL increases significantly there will need to be massive global collaboration to invest in the needed infrastructure and equipment. This research looks at alternative routes to decarbonisation without adversely impacting the economic and social benefits of air travel. Power-to-Liquid (PtL) enables us to act quickly in a non-disruptive way. In the long-term, we have to completely re-think aviation in a way that does not significantly harm the environment but enables economic growth and social development.
