FAA-Sponsored Green Initiative Wins Honor

1 min read

AirlinerThe Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuel Initiative (CAAFI), a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) sponsored effort to develop environmentally-sound, sustainable-alternative jet fuels, has received “one of the most coveted and valued honors” by a leading aviation-industry publication.

Air Transport World’s Joseph S. Murphy Industry Service Award is given to an individual or an organization that has performed outstanding service benefiting air travel.

“This recognition is a strong endorsement of CAAFI’s innovative public-private partnership and recognizes the tremendous joint effort leading to significant advancements for alternative jet fuels this past year,” said FAA Acting Assistant Administrator for Policy, Planning and Environment Nancy LoBue. “Environmentally sound alternative jet fuel is a key priority for the FAA and it is rapidly becoming a reality.”

CAAFI seeks to enhance energy security and environmental sustainability for aviation through alternative jet fuels.  The initiative is a coalition of the U.S. commercial aviation community that acts as a focal point for engaging the emerging alternative fuels industry.

It enables its diverse stakeholders to build relationships, share and collect needed data, identify resources, and direct research, development and deployment of alternative fuels.  The initiative is fostering efforts to ensure critical issues in fuel safety, research and development, environmental impacts, and business and economic viability are addressed.
