NISA is a Nordic association working to promote and develop a sustainable aviation sector.
We are also a part of the ALIGHT project, leading Work Package 2 (WP2), with emphasis on SAF and other propulsions. NISA and ALIGHT are both involved in projects regarding future aviation, airport infrastructure and air mobility.
NISA is a cross-cutting and independent organization that works to promote sustainable aviation. This is done through participation in analyzes, research and development projects that focus on new and sustainable fuels and propellants, for both existing aircraft and future technologies where also electric and hydrogen-based aircraft are expected to play an expanding and important role.
NISA works on behalf of Nordic airlines, airports, industry organizations, aircraft producers and technology developers. Nordic cooperation is the organization's basis, but NISA also participates in collaboration and development with several players on the global market.
ALIGHT is a four-year EU Horizon 2020 project focusing on the integration and use of SAF in European airports as well as the development of sustainable energy in ground equipment and energy supply. The project involves 16 European partners, including four European airports, several knowledge institutions as well as IATA, RSB and NISA. SAS is the only participating airline.
NISA leads one of the main tasks in the Work Package 2 (WP2):
Promote and make recommendations for agreements on sustainable aviation fuels and help pave the way for the airport to integrate future electric and hydrogen-powered aircraft
The aviation industry is committed to become more sustainable and before 2050 achieving no climate impact. This includes reducing its GHG footprint. At present, and for many years to come, there is a great need for liquid sustainable fuels and the development of new propellant and new ways of flying.
Sustainable aviation - the route to zero emissions
Existing fleet and fuel: Adjust, reduce, regulate and use - less fossil fuel
SAF based on sustainable biomaterials, wastes and residuals when sustainable
Electrofuels (PtX or GtL), based on renewable energy, hydrogen and captured carbon
Electric, hybrid and hydrogen propellants (combanitions and hybrids)
NISA welcomes new members who share the interest in getting renewable and sustainable solutions on the marked.
