ICAO Aviation and Sustainable Alternative Fuels Workshop

This International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) workshop will provide a forum for information exchange on the state of worldwide activities on sustainable alternative fuels, especially biofuels, for aviation. In addition, the workshop aims to enhance dialogue among member States, financial institutions, fuel producers and operators over project financing for sustainable alternative aviation fuels. Further discussions will focus on, among others: harmonizing life cycle analysis methodologies; sustainability criteria; legal and regulatory frameworks to ensure availability of supply of sustainable alternative fuels for aviation; and the role of sustainable alternative fuels in member States' emissions reduction actions.
