Consortium president and CEO Jean Paquin says in a press release that the fuel aligns with the criteria in the French government’s roadmap for the aviation sector.


The fuel is composed of hydrogen made from water using renewable energy, plus carbon captured from industrial emissions.

Advocates say sustainable jet fuels mark the airline industry’s best shot at reducing its greenhouse gas emissions.

Federal Innovation Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne says in the press release the government aims to ensure Canada’s place as a leader in sustainable aviation.
