Outline

  • Why Sustainable Alternative Jet Fuels?

  • Approach

  • How progress is made

  • Certification/Qualification

  • Global coalitions / projects


Why Aviation needs biofuels…

AIR QUALITY

ENERGY

Industry Economics

Energy Security

  • Aviation Environmental goals

    • 2% per year efficiency improvement

    • Reduce health impacts of aviation

    • CO2 neutral growth by 2020 from 2005

GLOBAL CLIMATE


Why biofuels need commercial aviation…

  • - Long-term Market

    • Depend on liquid fuels

    • Demand far exceeds supply

    • Bulk purchasing agreements

  • - Approval of all possible pathways

  • - Rapid deployment

    • Existing infrastructure for drop in biofuels

    • 80% fuel to 35 locations

- Need environmental sustainability

- Well-coordinated partner


Bio feedstock

FAA Approach

Advance use of “drop-in” renewable alternative fuels

  • No compromise in safety

  • Use of public-private partnerships

  • Successful demonstration

  • Quantification of environmental impacts, costs and benefits

Jet fuel

Processing


How Progress Is Made: Public-Private Partnerships

  • Continuous Lower Energy, Emissions and Noise (CLEEN)

  • Mature and demonstrate promising renewable alternative jet fuels

  • 50% cost share with industry: Boeing, Honeywell, Rolls-Royce

  • Initiated in 2010

  • Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative (CAAFI)

  • Promote commercialization of alternative jet fuels

  • Enable information exchange and coordination among stakeholders

  • Voluntary participation

  • Formed in 2006


Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative (CAAFI)

CAAFI Comprehensive Approach

Facilitate Deployment, Investment

Multiple “Drop-in” Solutions

GHG LCA, PM2.5 Quantification, Sustainability

ASTM D7566

  • Government-Industry-Academia Coalition

  • Addresses challenges to adoption

Certification-Qualification Team

Environmental Team

Business & Economics Team

R&D Team


Certification/Qualification of Alternative Fuels

  • Governed by ASTM International

  • New synthetic fuel specification approved Sept. 2009

  • Qualification procedure is defined & allows addition of new fuels

  • FAA and DoD are key government contributors
