Post-Event Report: Glimpse into the Future with Alternative Fuels in Aviation and Shipping

Yesterday marked an insightful day for us at cruh21: Stephanie Kratzer and Verena Hertzsch participated in the forum focusing on the future of alternative fuels in aviation and shipping, held at Continental AG / ContiTech. Organized by en2x - Wirtschaftsverband Fuels und Energie e.V. and Renewable Energies Hamburg (EEHH), the event provided an excellent opportunity to delve into the theme of "Alternative Fuels for Aviation and Shipping - Status Quo and Outlook," discussing the role of hydrogen and other green molecules in future mobility.

The focus was on the necessity for long-range, electricity- and bio-based fuels in shipping and aviation to achieve climate goals. The challenges are immense, particularly in terms of production and regulatory frameworks.

The two keynote speeches, presented by experts such as Kirsten Schümer, Oleksandr Siromakha from Mabanaft, Dr. Christoph de Beer from Sasol, and representatives from Raffinerie Heide GmbH and Agora Verkehrswende, shed light on the technical and regulatory aspects. It became clear that the road to sustainable mobility is fraught with challenges, but the direction towards a greener future is evident.

Challenges such as creating regulations to facilitate the market ramp-up of alternative fuels and establishing a CO2 cycle were discussed in depth. Especially, the international dimension of the aviation and shipping markets and the necessity of using green carbon for the production of green fuels were central topics.

The forum concluded with a clear takeaway: The direction post this enlightening day is unmistakable - towards a more sustainable and greener future in aviation and
