In a report called The Viability of Carbon Capture at Airports using Innovative Approaches, Cranfield University in the UK has found that urgent multi-million-pound investments are needed to mitigate airports’ CO2  emissions.

According to the report, technologies including direct air capture (DAC) are required if the UK is to make ‘green’ airports a reality in the future. DAC works by capturing CO2  in the air and then either sequestrating it or using it to manufacture carbon-neutral fuel. The study focused primarily on emissions from the operational aspects of airports, looking at how carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS) technologies could be deployed across the sector to help some airports effectively become green energy ‘power stations’ to fuel the aircraft they serve to achieve the true net zero target.
