The Kyoto agreement demands the aviation industry to reach substantial CO2 reduction numbers by 2012. The majority of participating nations release funds for the industry to promote prototyping processes to reach safe use of the Bio Fuels.
CTA introduces two types of Bio Fuel:
The CTA Bio fuel CNG and LNG as replacement for the Avgas 100 LL for aircrafts with piston engines (single and multi engines).
The Bio fuel LNG as a solid replacement of Jet A 1 Kerosine for gas turbine engines jet engines (but also for electricity plants using turbine engines and fossil fuels)for the small and medium business jets followed by the smaller cargo and airline aircrafts.
Research of the general aviation market reveals huge numbers of Avgas being used each year. In Europe the General Aviation (GA) fleet up to 6000 kg consumes an average of 6 Million liter Avgas per year. In the USA this GA industry consumes 1.3 billion liter avgas per year.
CTA and her partners are convinced that their ‘green’ CNG and LNG, which delivers already an emission reduction of 25%, can be delivered to the aviation market between 35% to 45% under the existing market prices of Avgas 100LL. That means for Aircrafts owners a return of investment of the rebuild fossile fuel engine within one bookyear!
The aircraft companies with engines, which are easy to adapt to this fuel, will be interested to use this green foot print, not only because of the costs involved but also given the upcoming EU regulations which targeted a mandatory reduction of 3% in 2012 and 5% in 2013, and thereby avoiding a payment of penalties after 2012.
