Working on the hydrogen strategy of the Port of Tallinn, Petrus Postma and his colleagues from &Flux developed an even bolder plan for Estonia: to become producer of sustainable aviation fuel for the Northwest European market.
The Estonian state has set itself the goal of achieving climate neutrality, and an important step in this regard is Eesti Energia’s decision to stop producing electricity from oil shale before 2030. Petrus Postma recently visited Estonia, believes that a high-tech plant for the production of sustainable aviation fuel would be a good substitute for this economy, using surplus bio and wood waste.
Although Estonia is quietly moving towards sustainable energy, we still need carbon molecules to produce many vital things: fuels, chemicals, and plastics, for example. Thus, according to Petrus Postma, the challenge is to find a sustainable source of carbon so as not to use carbon taken from the interior of the earth, in which case it will eventually enter the atmosphere. “It could be waste, biomass, and, ultimately, CO2 in the air,” he said. “We need to find this strategy on how to use sustainable carbon feedstock in industry and, of course, use it in the most valued way possible. Estonia has an extremely strong position in terms of these sustainable materials.”
