The aerospace industry, both commercial and military, is feeling the effects of fluctuating fuel costs, and the uncertainty of fossil fuels. In attempts to create stability, the military and global airline operators are looking for energy solutions to stabilize fuel expenses. The replacements for fossil fuels must be economically feasible and environmentally friendly.
The purpose of this inaugural event is to present information on emerging and applied technologies, discuss industry issues, explore potential solutions, and forge a path for future technologies.
The program will address a variety of topics, including:
- Current production processes of fossil fuels and alternative fuels
- Technical implications from the use of alternative fuels on current and future propulsion system development
- Non-drop-in alternatives
- Economic impacts pertaining to the introduction of alternative aerospace fuels into existing infrastructures
- Environmental impacts – carbon footprints, impact on CO2, NOx, SOx, water consumption, life cycle analysis
Also expect an interactive panel discussion featuring subject experts from regulatory associations and top industry organizations.
