Market Commercialization of Alternative Aviation Fuels

  • Joachim Buse


Implications of the commercialisation of Alternative Aviation Fuels are mostly associated with the prevailing conditions of the oil market and the current jet fuel procurement mechanisms. While Jet A-1 as the dominant jet fuel type is on sale in the aviation market since the early 1970’s, alternative fuels are going to compete with a highly integrated supply chain that is working to the satisfaction of airlines for more than four decades. The article describes the legal and operational requirements for new market participants wishing to supply their products to airlines as well as options to co-operate with conventional jet fuel suppliers for blending purposes in order to meet existing specification limits.
