ALIGHT - Sustanaible Aviation


Research and technology institutions, universites and public bodies

Knowledge institutions

Danish Technological Institute

DTI is a self-owned and not-for-profit institution working for technologically-based progress. Numerous testing laboratories support this effort.

Their role will be to establish a smart energy supply concept and a roadmap towards a fossile free airport.

German Aerospace Center 

DLR is the German national center for aerospace, energy and transportation research. The centre is

operating within research and development work in aeronautics, space, energy, transport and security.

They will be working with measurements to support deployment and utilisation of SAF.

International Air Transport Association (IATA)

is the global trade association of airlines. Their 290 members comprise 82 % of total air traffic. IATA

supports aviation with global standards for airline safety, security, efficiency and sustainability.

They will develop best practices regarding fuel supply and logistics in the airport, fuel quality monitoring and accounting.

Hamburg University of Technology

TUHH has a clear profile in research and innovative learning methods where theory and practice meet. It has 7860 students.

Their task in this project will be to apply a novel methodology for reporting and accounting of SAF.

University of Parma

Attention to teaching of quality, research, innovation and dissemination of knowledge are the core of the university's mission. It has 27.000 students.

Their task is to ensure the transferability of the ALIGHT concept and develop an applicable scheme. A PhD position will be established in this respect.

Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB)

RSB is a global, multi-stakeholder independent organisation that drives the development of a new world bioeconomy through sustainability solutions, certification and collaborative partnerships. 

Their task will be to develop standard guidelines for airports for SAF procurement. They will give advice on SAF sustainability with regard to RSB standards.

Nordic Initiative for Sustainable Aviation (NISA)

NISA has the task of pushing forward the development and commercialisation of sustainable fuels and electric- and hydrogen driven aircraft.

Their task in ALIGHT will be to investigate aspects of supply line of SAF and to ensure that relevant standards are met during the project.
