European Advanced Biofuels Flight Path Initiative

Project Objective: 

Commercialization of aviation biofuels

Initiative Description: 

  • 1. Facilitate the development of standards for drop-in biofuels and their certification for use in commercial aircrafts; 
  • 2. Work together with the full supply chain to further develop  worldwide accepted sustainability certification frameworks 
  • 3. Agree on biofuel take-off arrangements over a defined period of time and at a reasonable cost; 
  • 4. Promote appropriate public and private actions to ensure the market uptake of paraffinic biofuels by the aviation sector;  
  • 5. Establish financing structures to facilitate the realization of 2G biofuel projects; 
  • 6. Accelerate targeted research and innovation  for advanced biofuel technologies, and especially algae.
