3:02 min

A new project got off the ground on Monday, one that aims to get the aviation industry flying on fossil-free fuels in just 11 years.

To make domestic flights fossil-free by 2030, and for international flights from Sweden to be fossil-free by 2045, the government has earmarked SEK 100 million for the research and development of sustainable aviation fuels from forestry products.

The work bring togethers the state-funded Research Institute of Sweden, commercial airline Scandinavian Airlines and national airport operator Swedavia.

Those involved say Sweden could become a world-leader in the field, exporting technical expertise abroad.
