Aerospace Aviation Fuels Market Overview
Aerospace aviation fuels are specialized fuels based on petroleum that are utilized to power aircrafts. Aerospace aviation fuels are generally of higher quality as compared to fuels used in road transport or heating applications. Earlier, conventional fuels such as jet fuels and aviation gasoline, etc. were the most commonly utilized aviation fuels.
However, nowadays, the focus is shifting towards the utilization of cleaner and green fuels, such as biofuel, etc. Reduction of carbon emissions is one of the major concerns for the aviation industry. Since the aviation industry contributes significantly to the greenhouse gas emission, it is important for the aerospace aviation industry to move towards green and clean fuels such as Biofuels.
Biofuel are renewable fuels derived from biomass which help in the reduction of emissions and also ensure energy security for the sector.
