The GARDN team is proud to present its brand new white paper on Sustainable Aviation Fuels in Canada. It is divided in six main chapters, corresponding to six strategic areas that need to be focused on in order to develop SAF supply chains in Canada.
GREENER CANADIAN AEROSPACE - A LOOK TOWARD 2030
This study assessed, in a standardized way and based on selected relevant environmental metrics, the potential environmental benefits of the technologies developed as part of the GARDN projects. The evaluation was carried out in two phases:
1) the individual evaluation of the technology benefits for one flight and
2) the benefits evaluation for an entire fleet of aircraft equipped with the green technologies for the 2018–2030 period.
FINAL REPORT - PROJECT ATM
The objective of the ATM project was to assess the potential for biofuel production using the technology
of thermochemical liquefaction and woody biomass as raw material.
GARDN PROJECT REPORT - CAAFCER
