Abstract :

Almost every sector globally has been continuously improving their commitment to the environment and reduction in CO2 emissions. The aviation industry has understandably limited options to a degree due to its build and hence ability to easily reduce its CO2 emissions. All indications are that the aviation industry will continue to grow based on virtually every statistical dynamic and measurement. Due to limited mechanical options the aviation industry has been focused at reduction in CO2 emission commitments through the supply chain and its fuel use with a movement over to green biofuels and the carbon trading program. Many aviation customers, airports and even countries have publicly stated a commitment to green biofuels with some stating possible 100% movement over the next 10 years. Within ASTM D7566 you have a system of technical assessment and substantial testing requirement that all manufacturers of biofuels need to enter into for approval and use within the aviation industry. The study overviews the current approved aviation biofuel process, the fundamental fuel chemistry and fuel quality of biofuels and the challenges that could potentially face the industry when moving over to a large scale production of biofuels and use.
