Multi-million-pound investment is urgently needed in technologies including direct air capture (DAC) if the UK is to make ‘green’ airports a reality in the future, research by Cranfield University has revealed. In the study that focuses primarily on emissions from the operational aspects of airports, researchers looked at how carbon capture, utilisation and sequestration (CCUS) technologies could be deployed across the sector to help some airports effectively become green energy ‘power stations’ to fuel the aircraft they serve for achieving the true net zero target. DAC works by capturing CO2 in the air and then either sequestrating it or using
