How caafi works leveraging efforts of interested parties

How CAAFI Works: Leveraging Efforts of Interested Parties

  • Four Teams Aimed at Addressing Key Questions to Get Sustainable Alternative Aviation Fuel to Commercially Viable Deployment

    • Certification/Qualification (jet fuel specs & qualifications)

    • Research and Development (suitable fuels/feedstocks)

    • Environment (confirming methods, tools)

    • Business & Economics (finance/commercial terms)

ICAO Symposium on Aviation and Climate Change, "Destination Green", ICAO Headquarters, Montréal, Canada, 14 - 16 May 2013


What we need to get to commercially viable deployment

What We Need to Get to Commercially Viable Deployment

  • 1) Safety/Suitable Fuels

    • This is addressed through

      • The jet fuel specification; and

      • Application of procedures to assure fuel quality is maintained

We now know how to do this

  • 2) Environmental Benefit

    • This is being addressed through

      • Lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions; and

      • Sustainability review

Need confirmed methods and regulatory and contract acceptance

  • 3) Commercial Viability – in addition to Safety & Environmental Benefit …

    • Need cost competitiveness &

    • Supply reliability

These pose the highest hurdles at this stage

Potential role for carbon credits

ICAO Symposium on Aviation and Climate Change, "Destination Green", ICAO Headquarters, Montréal, Canada, 14 - 16 May 2013


Caafi environment team advancing methods and tools

CAAFI Environment Team:Advancing Methods and Tools

  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)

    • Key guidance

    • Case studies

    • Included jet fuel pathways into ANL Greet Model

    • Currently working on a project to compare GHG LCA results from different models/tools

      • U.S. EPA-RFS2

      • EU Renewable Energy Directive – BioGrace

      • GREET

For now, accepted country-based tools are fine; but eventually will need mutual recognition for proper crediting of environmental benefit (alternative fuel for international flights)

Caafi environment team methods tools continued

CAAFI Environment Team:Methods & Tools (continued)

  • Sustainability - (Draft) “Impact Matrix” and Guidance

    • Identifies areas of concern – key environmental indicators

    • Identifies relevant metrics for reflecting potential impact

    • Overview of existing regulatory and voluntary sustainability regimes

    • “Impact Matrix” sets out sustainability impact issues across the aviation alternative fuel supply chain

  • Environmental Progression

    • Puts “environmental readiness” on a scale with feedstock readiness and fuel readiness

    Meeting the challenge of cost competitiveness supply reliability

    Meeting the Challenge of Cost Competitiveness & Supply Reliability

    • What Is Needed

      • Consistent energy/biofuels policy from governments

        • Alternative fuels development, incentive and deployment programs must include aviation (not just ground-based fuels)

      • Public-private partnerships to scale up supply and prove commercial supply chains

      • Proper crediting of environmental benefit with fuel purchases (book & claim accounting)

      • Market signals from fuel purchasers

    A quick caafi case study

    A Quick CAAFI Case Study

    • Using Public-Private Coalitions to Marshal Resources

      • CAAFI - alliances with Brazil, Germany, EU, Australia, etc.

      • A4A “Strategic Alliance” with the U.S. Military

      • FAA – CLEEN program research & development

      • Farm to Fly with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Boeing (and other partners) – just extended through 2018

        • Primary focus on linking feedstock supply chain with fuel production and end users; leverage agricultural programs

      • U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Energy and Navy initiative to stand up supply chains with industry

      • U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) credit available for aviation fuels

    • Airlines Sending Market Signals– pre-purchase agreements
