The aviation sector must become fossil-free by 2050. This will require enormous quantities of synthetic kerosene produced from green hydrogen and sustainable CO2, so-called e-kerosene.
A study by the dena in collaboration with LUT University and Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik GmbH calculates the volumes, costs, area demand, and competition for renewable electricity of e-kerosene produced with CO2 from Direct Air Capture (DAC) in the US and Europe 2030 to 2050 in a net-zero scenario in 2050.
The study includes an executive summary presenting 14 key results, a policy primer with several actionable options for EU and US policymakers, and 6 detailed chapters elaborating on each research questions. With 51 figures and 33 tables, it is dena’s most extensive work on e-kerosene to date.
