Juan Miguel GonzalezJuan Miguel has more than 15 years of expertise in the aeronautical industry, working in structures and aeroplane architecture for different planes and now pushing for zero emissions solutions: SAF, electric and hydrogen technology.
Carbon emissions are just one side of the climate impact of aviation. Non-CO2 effects are around two thirds of the total effect, 85% of them linked to airplane contrails. Different solutions are being studied such as sustainable fuels (SAF), the reduction of aromatics, modification of the routes to avoid specific areas and avoiding the formation of condensation trails by flying at lower altitudes. CITD Smart SAF system is also targeting a new solution to the non-CO2 effects where IA will be used for condensation trails prediction based not only on atmospheric data but also on added onboard airplane data analyses.
