Dubai Airshow 2023 showcases sustainable future ideas

The aviation industry is taking steps to decarbonize, with innovation accelerating at an exponential rate. The industry is committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050, and several initiatives are underway to make this happen. One of the key initiatives is the production of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). SAF is made from renewable sources and can reduce carbon emissions by up to 80% compared to traditional jet fuel. However, SAF production is still in its early stages, and more needs to be done to increase its availability and affordability.


In the Middle East, several initiatives are underway to support the development of SAF. For example, Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) has signed an agreement with Airbus to support the development and growth of the global SAF market. Qatar Airways has also signed a deal with Shell to source 3,000 metric tonnes of neat SAF at Amsterdam Schiphol airport.

In addition to SAF, other technologies are also being developed to decarbonize the aviation industry. For example, Airbus is working on hydrogen-powered commercial aircraft, and Honeywell has launched a new technology called UOP eFining that produces lower-carbon aviation fuel from green hydrogen and carbon dioxide captured from the industry.

The Dubai Airshow will be a major platform for the aviation industry to showcase its latest decarbonization initiatives. The show will feature a dedicated sustainability conference, where industry experts will discuss steps for creating a more sustainable aerospace ecosystem. Overall, the aviation industry is committed to decarbonization, and there is a growing momentum behind this effort. With continued innovation, the industry is well-positioned to achieve its net zero emissions goals by 2050.
