Want to find out how to produce CO2-neutral airplane fuel? Meet Guy DAVISTER from DE SMET & Fabrice ORBAN from HAMON Group  Register NOW at our Master Sessions on Green Chemistry & White Biotech!

RESA-HAMON-ULg (2 Professors) and DSEC have decided to combine their expertise to develop a project for the production of CO2-Neutral Kerosene: The challenge being tackled is the delivery of a high density renewal fuel to meet the demand for a "defossilised" airplane fuel.
The chosen method is based on the close integration of 3 main steps: the Production/utilisation of green hydrogen, CO2 capture (industrial fatal CO2, or from the Atmospheric Capture of CO2 directly), and the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. The development includes a thorough research phase in order to optimise the operation of such a production complex and demonstrate its economic feasibility (obviously including the valorisation of the reaction energy that represents about 25% of the overall energy of the system).
The ultimate step is the construction of a demonstration plant located in Wallonia: the project also integrates 2 additional objectives: the re-industrialisation of the region and the rehabilitation of industrial wasteland, such as the disused site of Chertal, that could be ideally located near Liège Airport, with nearby sources of fatal CO2 and with the possibility to utilise/valorise the reaction energy thanks to an existing urban heating network.
