Engineering company Strata is working with the Energy Institute at the University of Sheffield on a research project on the production of ‘green’ aviation fuel using carbon dioxide captured from waste process streams and hydrogen produced from renewable sources. This research could pave the way to a carbon-neutral aviation industry.

Despite the global pandemic, Strata has been working throughout and are right on schedule.

In mid-July, they completed the Preliminary Design Review with the University of Sheffield, where they presented the Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs) for the complete pilot plant design and published their report outlining the actions requiring completion before the Final Design Review is undertaken.
