Qatar Airways, QSTP and Qatar Petroleum to Develop Renewable Biojet Fuel with Support of Airbus; Formation of Qatar Advanced Biofuel Platform

Green Car Congress

Qatar Airways, Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP) and Qatar Petroleum (QP) will jointly carry out engineering, economic analysis and move into the development of renewable biojet fuel that will also look into ways for production and supply, with the support of Airbus. Qatar Airways successfully conducted the world’s first commercial flight powered by a Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) fuel blend last October. Qatar Airways will operate a fleet of 120 aircraft by 2013.

BP Statistical Review finds global oil share down for 12th year in a row, coal share up to highest level since 1969; renewables at 2%

Green Car Congress

Coal’s market share of 30.3% Oil demand grew by less than 1%—the slowest rate amongst fossil fuels—while gas grew by 2.2%, and coal was the only fossil fuel with above average annual consumption growth at 5.4% The loss of oil supplies in Libya and elsewhere was eventually more than offset by large production increases among Middle Eastern OPEC members, leading to record oil production in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar.

New approach for synthetic rubber for degradable tires: converting cyclopentene to polypentenamers

Green Car Congress

A team from the Texas A&M University campus in Qatar (TAMU-Qatar) and Caltech has developed a new way to make synthetic rubber; once this material is discarded, it can be easily degraded back to its chemical building blocks and reused in new tires and other products. More than half go on to become tire-derived fuel—shredded scrap tires that get mixed with coal and other materials to help power cement kilns, pulp and paper mills and other plants.
