Summary

Declaration of cooperation between Spain and the U.S.A. in alternative fuels for aviation

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency (AESA) have signed a Declaration of Cooperation to promote the development and use of sustainable alternative aviation fuels in the United States and Spain.

The Declaration calls for the U.S. and Spain to exchange ideas, information, skills and techniques, and to collaborate on problems and projects of mutual interest in the development and use of sustainable alternative aviation fuels. The specific areas of cooperation include exchanging information about research results, publications, funded research and development activities.

The parties also will share best practices in alternative jet fuel conversion research, development and deployment. The Declaration also enables the FAA’s Office of Environment and Energy and AESA to explore the possibilities for cooperation in other areas, such as researching the life-cycle effects from alternative fuel emissions on the atmosphere, as well as research leading to reductions in the cost of producing alternative aviation fuels.
