Alternative Fuels and Environmental Impact the Topics of New SAE International Aerospace Symposium in Brussels

WARRENDALE, Pa., Feb. 12, 2013 - 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 new “SAE 2013 Aerospace Alternative Fuels and Associated Environmental Impacts Symposium” will present information on emerging and applied technologies, discuss industry issues, explore potential solutions, and forge a path for future technologies.

The event will be held June 13-14 in Brussels, Belgium, and 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 C02, NOx, SOx, water consumption, life cycle analysis

In addition, attendees will participate in interactive panel discussions featuring subject experts from regulatory associations and top industry organizations.
