project R-7824

Title : MIT project 'Alternative Jet Fuel Supply Chain Analysis' (R-7824)
Abstract: In this project, the researchers are approaching sustainable jet fuel production holistically, considering technological, environmental, economic, and social elements. The project aims to use these analyses to identify key barriers throughout the alternative jet fuel supply chain that must be overcome to produce and effectively market 1 billion gallons of alternative jet fuel in the near term and 10 billion gallons in the longer term in the United States of America. This project is also supporting the efforts of the Alternative Fuel Task Force (AFTF) within the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP) in their efforts to evaluate the potential of alternative jet fuels to help meet aviation environmental goals and to assess the life cycle CO2 emissions from the use of these fuels.
Period of project : 1/09/2016to31/08/2022
