Energy Talks&Drinks | Minimizing environmental impact: low carbon transport solutions

In Newsby Ashley Hofmann

Being sustainable and conscious in life is determined by the choices we make every day, for example by the way we travel. During the Energy Talks&Drinks on June 4 we talked about developments in public and industry transport and how they will contribute to the energy transition.

View the recording of the Energy Talks&Drinks below.

David Dwek, Supply Chain Analyst – SkyNRG
Flying is essential for economies and businesses globally, but the impact of aviation on our carbon footprint is significant and growing rapidly. Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) made from sustainable raw materials is the only way to significantly reduce the dependency on fossil kerosene in the near term while supporting the sustainable growth of air travel. SkyNRG, the global market leader for SAF, not only fulfills the demand for SAF (through sales & supply) but also creates the demand by developing new SAF volumes through innovative projects. David Dwek, Supply Chain Analyst at the Future Fuels team, introduced us to this topic with several of SkyNRG’s innovative initiatives.

Rik Roeske, Project Lead – Hardt Hyperloop
After having won Elon Musk’s hyperloop competition and having built Europe’s first hyperloop test facility in Delft, Hardt is taking hyperloop to the next level to create a world where distance doesn’t matter. Their hyperloop links airports, harbors, large city pairs and smaller cities in between with a low-pressure tube which allows vehicles to travel over 1000 km/h, using just a fraction of the energy consumed by cars, planes and trains. A couple of months ago Hardt announced that the province of Groningen will host the European Hyperloop Center and a recent concept study on the impact of hyperloop for the province of North Holland show very promising results. Rik Roeske, Project Lead for the Cargoloop, Hardt’s hyperloop-solution for cargo transportation, updated us about Hardt’s developments.
