Aviation Carbon 2018

5-6 November 2018

London, United Kingdom


The Aviation Carbon series of conferences bring the aviation sector together with carbon market professionals and other stakeholders to hear the latest developments on market-based measures and other actions to address the aviation industry’s carbon emissions. This year’s event will allow airlines and aircraft operators to obtain the latest status and impact assessments of the ICAO Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) before mandatory CO2 emissions reporting starts on 1 January 2019. As well as presentations and discussion panels with experts from industry, carbon markets, regulators, sustainable aviation fuel suppliers, government and NGOs, there will be a half-day workshops on CORSIA MRV, carbon markets and sustainable aviation fuels in Europe. Partners to Aviation Carbon 2018 include the major international airline and carbon market associations; ICSA, which represents sustainable aviation NGOs; and the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials.

‘Flying Sustainable’ GARDN Conference 2018

13-14 November 2018

Ottawa, Canada


Since 2009, Canada’s Green Aviation Research and Development Network (GARDN) has contributed to the development of technologies and processes for quiet, clean and sustainable air transport, including collaborative projects on sustainable aviation fuels. This conference will be the opportunity to learn more about those innovations and to connect with key stakeholders from the Canadian government, research institutes and industry. The objective of the conference is to better integrate cross-sectoral strengths that accelerate the development of sustainable alternatives to aircraft design, engines, avionics systems and fuels.

RAeS Greener by Design Conference 2018

20 November 2018

London, UNited Kingdom


The theme of this year’s conference, organised by the Royal Aeronautical Society, is the ‘Impact of Electric and Hybrid propulsion in Aviation’. The conference will consider how far existing technology can take aviation down the electric/hybrid route and the research that is planned to improve that technology. It will also debate the main technical and operational challenges to further development as well as assessing the potential environmental rewards.

Aviation Fuels & Additives Training Course 2019

8-12 April 2019

University of Sheffield, United Kingdom


This MSc level 35-hour course module for Aviation Fuels & Additives was originally developed in 2016 as part of a collaboration between Airbus and the UK government’s then Department for Business, Innovation & Skills. The aim of the course is to provide training to develop specialist skills in a growing field where there is currently a knowledge and skills gap in the industry. This follows the increase in new semi-synthetic fuel blends entering the market and the work around the world to accelerate development of the next generation alternative fuels. The course will be held in world-class, state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories that provide modern interdisciplinary teaching, as well as specialist engineering teaching facilities. Teaching will comprise a 50/50 split between leading academics and industrial guest lecturers. The course also looks at the environmental sustainability of the aerospace industry and includes a practical lab day at the Sheffield Low Carbon Combustion Centre.
