Yeast-based solutions for
Sustainable Aviation Fuels

YAF is a Doctoral Network of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie action program (MSCA-DN GA 101120389) that will train the next generation of researchers in a highly interdisciplinary and intersectorial research environment such that they can soundly address upcoming challenges concerning production yeast-based Sustainable Aviation Fuels.

YAF research programme aims at:

Producing carbon sources from biowastes

Developing new yeast cell factories to produce SAF

Designing new bifunctional catalysts

Achieving efficient strategies for FA/terpenes extraction

Creating robust framework tailored to the scaling-up methodologies and life-cycle sustainability assessment of different SAF producing routes, which will support decision-making.
