Reach for the Stargate

As part of an ecosystem approach to industry issues, in November 2021, Brussels Airport launched the Stargate project, where over five years it is working with a consortium of 21 partners on 30 projects to make aviation and airports greener and more sustainable.
Stargate includes the introduction of (high-ratio blend) SAF at the airport, electric ground handling tests, and testing technology that will make engine test runs much quieter.
The Stargate project has received a €24.8 million (US $27 million) grant from the European Green Deal to implement these projects in the coming years.
The partners in the Stargate consortium are Athens International Airport, Budapest Airport, Aéroport de Toulouse-Blagnac, Brussels Airlines, TUI, DHL Aviation, Engie Laborelec, Air Cargo Belgium, Skytanking, skeyes, To70, Lux Mobility, the University of Hasselt, the Erasmus Centre for Urban, Port and Transport Economics, IES R&D, Sopra Steria, the Province of Flemish Brabant, Quatra, the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO), NMBS and the Flanders Institute for Logistics.
