Take off: Carbon removals and sustainable fuels on the runway to net-zero aviation
Here are some key takeaways from the report
In a case study of three airlines, the majority of credits bought to date have been on credits with low or a moderately low likelihood of achieving a tonne of carbon removed or avoided (BeZero Carbon Rating of C, B and BB).
If we fail to bring down costs of sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) and engineered carbon removal credits, tickets could be 230% higher in 2050.
Up to 3.4 gigatonnes of carbon may need to be removed by 2050 to counterbalance non-CO₂ emissions from aviation. Engineered carbon removal currently removes around 2 megatonnes of carbon a year.
