  • UK opposes green aviation targets

    The UK Government is lobbying for aviation to be excluded from an EU plan to boost renewable energy, it has been revealed today. Under EU proposals Europe would have to supply 20 per cent of its energy from renewable energy sources by 2020 - with the UK expected to ensure that 15 per cent of its energy came from green energy by that date. But despite paying lip service to the plan, the UK ...

  • New figures on the impact of aviation on global climate change

    The contribution of aviation to climate change is increasing. A recent study uses radiative forcing (RF) to quantify and update values on the impact of aviation on the climate. It reveals an increase in total aviation RF of 14 per cent over the period 2000-2005. Radiative forcing (RF) is a measure of the imbalance between incoming solar radiation and outgoing infrared radiation at the surface of ...

  • Algae holds promise to make aviation carbon-neutral

    Forget about revolutionary light-weight composite materials: a four-seater propeller plane is more likely to hold the key to the future of aviation. Or at least that"s the hope of European aerospace and defense giant EADS. The group, which owns Airbus, is showing off an aircraft powered by algae juice at the Farnborough Airshow this week. EADS (EURONEXT:FR:EAD) is betting that the small aircraft, ...

  • Paris could leave aviation and shipping fuel tax-free and climate target-free

    The aviation and shipping sectors are set to be exempt from targeted CO2 emissions cuts in the December Paris climate agreement, according to the latest draft deal. This is an irresponsible U-turn, say environmental groups Seas At Risk and Transport & Environment. CO2 emissions from the two sectors are set to grow by up to 250% by 2050, making attempts to limit global warming to 2°C all ...
