The deep fried mars bar can save the planet’: Offshore helicopters could use ‘chip fat’ fuel to cut emissions

A fuel derived from “chip fat” could be the near-term answer for offshore helicopters to cut emissions, according to an aviation expert.

“It turns out the deep-fried mars bar can save the planet”, was the tongue-in-cheek comment from Andy Evans, director of Aberdeen-based consultancy Aerossurance, at an Oil and Gas UK event on Wednesday.

Mr Evans was highlighting sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) as “the most available and technically fesible” option in the short term for the sector, including offshore helicopters, to reduce emissions; a challenge being looked at closely as COP26 comes up in Glasgow in November.
