  1. Sustainable Aviation Fuel Industry Development

  2. Our Approach • Work with the aviation industry to encourage development of sustainable aviation fuel industry. • Engage with Governments to identify and remove impediments to facilitate the greater uptake of sustainable aviation fuels. • Strategically support research that will accelerate the commercialisation of competitively priced sustainable aviation fuels. • Support the establishment of a fuel sustainability standard tailored to our region’s conditions. • Strategically support sustainable fuel development projects that utilise realistic technologies fulfilling the industries requirements listed above and can demonstrate realistic timelines.

  3. Roadmap • Is there enough sustainable biomass available in the region? • Will it be economically viable to produce bio-derived jet fuels? • Refining pathways • Competition for biomass • What are the challenges? • What are the benefits?

  4. Participants Government: DRET DCCEE Treasury NZ Govt NSW, SA, Qld & Vic + Invited speakers: CleanStar Aurora Aquaflow Algae R&D Centre, Murdoch Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels Algal Fuels Consortium

  5. Challenges and Opportunities • Sustainable aviation fuels derived from biomass are a feasible option. • There is sufficient existing sustainable biomass to support a local bio-derived jet fuel industry. • The region is strongly positioned to produce sustainable aviation fuels. • There will be challenges in the scale-up of economically viable feedstock production.

  6. Challenges and Opportunities • There will be high demand among industries for biofuels. • Investment by the refining sector will be impacted by uncertainty. • Aviation fuel distribution infrastructure will not require significant modification, however access arrangements for bio-derived jet fuel suppliers will need to be established • A local production industry for sustainable aviation fuels will bring significant economic, social and environmental benefits.

  7. Actions • Market Structure • Biomass supply • Refining, and certification • Certification

  8. Industry Partnerships • Virgin Australia seeks to partner with groups and companies on processes and technologies that - • Promotes innovation and sustainable outcomes for our region, • Are “realistic” with a medium time frame – ie fits the technical requirements of aviation. • May provide the required volumes of fuel at required price points, • Will comply with a sustainability framework.

  9. “Jet Fuel from Mallee Trees” • Partnership with Renewable Oil Corporation, Dynamotive Energy Systems Corporation, Future Farm Industries Co-operative Research Centre and GE. • Conversion of Mallee grown in WA wheat belt to Jet Fuel via fast pyrolysis and upgrading. • Crude bio-oil is stable. • Reputable partners, realistic technologies and processes, strong social, environmental and economic outcomes. • Virgin Australia providing – technical supports, facilitates industry linkages, sustainability framework, public relations, assistance with characterisation and testing of fuel.

  10. | Aviation Biofuel Qld Sustainable Aviation Fuel Initiative Supported under the Queensland Government NIRAP grant program • Aviation depends on liquid fuels with high energy content • Aviation industry actively encouraging and supporting development of sustainable aviation fuel • Australia is well situated to meet the needs for renewable jet fuel in SE Asia

  11. Capital and operating costs Energy use Detailed process flows Biofuel Plant Wastes and emissions | Aviation Biofuel Techno-economic Analysis • Focuses on the plant design for biofuel production processes • Gives detailed information about process performance and economics New technologies Biorefinery life cycle

  12. | Aviation Biofuel Techno-Economic Analysis • Three routes to bio-jet fuel in Queensland under examination • Sugarcane: microbial fermentation of sucrose (alkenes/alkanes) • Pongamia: oil seed (biodiesel) • Algae: lipids (biodiesel) • Full techno-economic and lifecycle analysis • Which routes are feasible? • Publicly-available, transparent information on current best practice will be used in the models
