Together with partners, Stuttgart Airport wants to use a feasibility study to clarify how climate-friendly synthetic kerosene can be produced from "green" hydrogen and process-related carbon dioxide (CO2) from cement production.

According to the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Transport, a future plant with a capacity of 50.000 tons in Heidenheim-Mergelstetten is possible. The state is funding a study for the project with around one million euros. "Air traffic must also make its contribution to climate protection," said department head Winfried Hermann. The project consortium, which includes Stuttgart Airport, Schwenk Zement and SkyNRG, is also committed to the project with one million euros. If the so-called feasibility study is successful, climate-friendly kerosene could be produced on an industrial scale for the first time from the CO2 in the exhaust air of a cement plant. Hydrogen is also used for production. This could start in 2028.
