  • 17-Jan-2008 04:45 EST

At November’s Dubai Airshow, Qatar AirwaysQatar Petroleum, Qatar Fuel, Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Shell, and the Qatar Science and Technology Park signed an agreement to research the feasibility and potential benefits of using gas-to-liquid synthetic jet fuels in aviation engines. The focus of the research will be on evaluating potential improvements in local air quality, fuel economy, and overall reduction in CO2 and other emissions. Specific studies will also look at operational benefits for airlines, such as enhanced payload range, reduced fuel burn, and increased engine durability. Synthetic fuels will initially be mixed with standard kerosene to enable the group to model aircraft and engine performance. The potential of fully synthetic fuels will be explored at a later stage.
