"Green skies thinking – promoting the development and commercialisation of sustainable bio-jet fuels"(PDF)

Authors: Ben Caldecott and Sean Tooze

Publication date: 22 July 2009

The report calls for more emphasis on the development and commercialisation of sustainable bio-jet fuels as, in the opinion of the authors, bio-jet fuels are the only option to significantly reduce carbon emissions from aviation without cutting the number of flights. The report calls for an EU Sustainable Bio-Jet Fuel Blending Mandate to be in place by 2020 and increased financial support for companies conducting research and development into the production of sustainable bio-jet fuels.
