Short-Term and Long-Term Feedstock Bio Jet Fuel for Green Environment of Air Transport in Climate Change Awareness


Article Preview

Air transportation and manageable cost is the key to determine the smooth running of the airlines. Today, the trend is changing with the environment generally and sustainability standards specifically. Responsibility towards environmental issues, in conjunction with safety and security, remains an essential promise for the aviation industry, even in the face of the economic downturn. IATA’s vision is for carbon-neutral growth on the way to a zero-emission future. This is being implemented through IATA’s four-pillar strategy: investing in technology, flying planes effectively, building efficient infrastructure and using positive economic measures (technology, operations, infrastructure and economic instruments). This paper will focus in the projection on biofuel as an alternative energy compromise reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emission in overview through short-term and long-term feedstock biomass. As environmental concerns are becoming clearer in general transportation systems, air transportation generates for its presence which must be considered in strategic planning development for the bio jet fuel to be implemented in near future in air transport operations for tenable greener skies.
