Printer-friendly versionSend by email

While consumers focus on alternative fuels for cars, there are other modes of transport for which they are also being studies. The Transportation Research Board recently issued a study titled "Guidelines for Integrating Alternative Jet Fuel into the Airport Setting." The report is described as identifying "the types and characteristics of alternative jet fuels; summarizes potential benefits; addresses legal, financial, environmental, and logistical considerations and opportunities; and aids in evaluating the feasibility of alternative jet fuel production facilities."
