ICAO’s work on this issue responds to Resolution A36-22: Consolidated statement of continuing ICAO policies and practices related to environmental protection, which recognized the urgent need for more concerted and effective action to reduce the carbon footprint of international aviation, the importance of research and development in fuel efficiency and alternative fuels.
The Conference is intended to be a major event showcasing the state of the art in aviation alternative fuels, and an event at which a road map for the implementation of aviation alternative fuels will be considered.
In preparation for this Conference, ICAO held a workshop on aviation and alternative fuels in February 2009. On the final day of this workshop, a meeting was convened to establish a Conference organizing committee responsible for developing the conference programme.
