This so much better than the silly "flight shame".

They are going to make sustainable aviation fuel from:

✳️ Wind (electricity)
✳️ Water (H2)
✳️ Air (CO2)

@JohanEmpa Very interesting press release indeed. Covid 19 gives humankind the chance to rethink things thoroughly. Honestly, humankind will fail again, miserably. There is plenty of money, see

rfi.fr/en/business/20201118-fr

So there should be diverting of cash to support/grant subsidies as Zenid seems to be very promising.

And if - in the long run - there will be a "green" fuel, there still is the problem regarding the considerable aircraft noise...

@martin yes noise is a difficult problem. You're right there is money and I think they should subsidise renewable fuel to get it going. Later some flights will become electric or perhaps hybrid.

I may have read somewhere that EU want to create incentives for renewable airplane fuels to happen. Something like demanding a certain percent to be mixed in with regular fuel and increasing it every year. Not sure where I read it, or if I remember it correct.
