Session 12 + 13 - 18th International Congress for Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future 2021" 18.-22.-01.2021
Sustainability and climate protection are also the decisive benchmarks for the future in aviation, just as they are in other sectors. Increasing efficiency and reducing consumption have been priorities for the major airlines for years. Much has been achieved in recent years: while aviation transport volumes have increased worldwide, kerosine consumption has risen by only three percent. However, in the light of forecast growth, efficiency alone will not be enough to achieve a sustainable reduction in CO2 emissions from air transport. Airlines therefore intend to make growing air traffic levels sustainable by using alternative fuels. To achieve this, increasing shares of renewable kerosene are essential. That is because new forms of propulsion, such as electric or hydrogen drives, cannot be expected to be operational in air transport in the coming years, in contrast to other modes of transport. Within the framework of the digital “Fuels of the Future” conference, various presentations will discuss which feedstocks can be used to produce sustainable fuels for air transport and what form concepts for the approval and fuel design of sustainable aviation fuels will take.

"Fuels of the Future" 2021! - Reminder Early Bird Rate – 18th International Congress on Renewable Mobility
With more than 60 speakers and a total of 15 thematically different modular sessions, the next conference will offer a thematic diversity that shows practically all options for a step-by-step decarbonization of energy sources and energy carriers and thus the gradual transformation of drives towards climate neutrality. Practically every mode of transport as well as the different drive concepts, sustainable raw material sources for the generation of the required energy quantities will be considered in the conference program. This is a special unique selling point of this conference and shows also in its now 18 years of history the breadth in the development, which is finally the topic of the respective lectures.

Session 10 - 18th International Congress for Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future 2021" 18.-22.-01.2021
Session 10: Advanced Alternative Fuels – Technology Options and Investments Emerging innovations in new process technologies for production of low-greenhouse-gas alternative fuels have made considerable progress in recent years. The focus is not only on improving the efficiency of fuel production from agricultural and forestry residues, but also on deploying residues arising from cycle-optimised waste management. This increases the potential for substituting fossil fuels with the aim of decarbonising existing fleets, e.g. heavy goods vehicles, as soon as possible. In contrast to production plants for commercially available biofuels from cultivated biomass, for example rapeseed, which are linked to existing agricultural infrastructure, such as oil mills, these plants can be operated as stand-alone facilities. An appropriate structure for continuous supply of feedstocks must also be developed for these plants.

Session 7+14: BIOMETHANE AS A FUEL: GASEOUS, LIQUID AND SUSTAINABLE! BIOMETHANE IN THE INTERNATIONAL CONTEXT: LEGAL FRAMEWORK, INCENTIVES, SUCCESS STORIES
Biomethane’s importance in the transport sector as a versatile fuel is growing inexorably, primarily in view of its environmental advantages. Sales of biomethane in the mobility sector in 2019, for example, rose to 660 GWh, i.e. by around 70 percent compared with the previous year. Biogas producers have reacted rapidly to increased demand for biogenic CNG. In future, it will be possible to respond just as promptly to market demand for liquid biomethane – bio-LNG; the first liquefaction projects are already on the starting blocks.
