No. of Attendees 201

Global aviation has been expanding especially in emerging areas such as the Asia region. However, as traffic volume grows, the increase in CO2 emission and the rise of oil prices have become crucial threats for the stakeholders of the worldwide aviation sector.

In this seminar, four top-class representatives of the stakeholders, who are leading the efforts toward realizing low-carbon, sustainable aviation, gave lectures on topics including cutting edge information on the development of aircraft with high fuel efficiency or sustainable alternative aviation fuels. The speakers also outlined the present efforts and the future strategy of the US government.

These lectures were followed by a Q&A session in which the lecturers and the audience actively discussed such points as what the key to spread alternative aviation fuel is, potential problems that may occur at airports when the alternative fuel is supplied, and how to mitigate the congestion at airports or on air routes which have negative impact on fuel efficiency.
