Welcome to ITAKA

A consortium of leading aerospace and fuel companies has launched ITAKA, an initiative to produce sustainable biofuels for use in aviation.

ITAKA consists of collaborative project, aimed to produce sustainable renewable aviation fuel and to test its use in existing logistic systems and in normal flight operations in Europe.

CORE-JetFuel taking up its work

A new European project has started. The CORE-JetFuel project supports the European Commission in its dynamic and informed implementation of research and innovation projects in the field of sustainable alternative fuels for aviation. It links initiatives and projects at the EU and Member State level, serving as a focal point in this area to all public and private stakeholders. CORE-JetFuel addresses competent authorities, research institutions, feedstock and fuel producers, distributors, aircraft and engine manufactures, airlines and NGOs.

The Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR) is coordinating the project development and the team with the partners from Bauhaus Luftfahrt e.V., SENASA, WIP, EADS-IW, IFPEN. This FP7 Coordination and Support Action has a duration of three years from September 2013 till August 2016.

Sustainable Aviation Fuels Forum

The projects CORE-JetFuel, FORUM-AE and ITAKA announce the Sustainable Aviation Fuels Forum taking place in Madrid on 20th – 22nd October 2014. This event will focus on recent progress and important steps forward in the field of sustainable fuels for aviation. It will bring together stakeholders to share experiences and views, to exchange best practices, to evaluate emerging issues and to jointly elaborate recommendations towards the successful future development of sustainable aviation fuels.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 308807
