Jet Propellant 8 versus alternative jet fuels
The Air Force is the largest user of jet fuel in the Department of Defense (DOD), consuming 2.4 billion gallons per year. For that reason the United States is paying more attention to alternative fuels. This article addresses how to evaluate whether a proposed biofuel is greener than the jet propellant 8 (JP-8) the Air Force currently uses.

Policies and Collaborative Partnership for Sustainable Aviation
The objective of the report is to identify supportive policy frameworks, innovative partnerships, financing,and information and education approaches to help the aviation industry reach its voluntary CO2 emission reduction goals while supporting sustainable growth and minimizing competitive distortion.
The overall conclusion of the report is that, in orderto achieve the aviation industry’s ambitious emission reduction goals, industry and governments will need to collaborate to ensure the implementation of the key CO2 abatement levers – aviation infrastructure improvements, technology research and development,and aviation biofuels – is driven forward and supporting policies are put in place.

Using a Life Cycle Assessment Approach to Estimate the Net Greenhouse Gas Emissions of Bioenergy
The report addresses the key methodological aspects of life cycle assessment (LCA) with respect to greenhouse gas (GHG) balances of bioenergy systems. It includes results via case studies, for some important bioenergy supply chains in comparison to fossil energy systems.
The purpose of the report is to produce an unbiased, authoritative statement aimed especially at practitioners, policy advisors, and policy makers.
