ICAO Aviation and Sustainable Alternative Fuels Workshop (SUSTAF)
18 Oct 2011 - 20 Oct 2011This ICAO Workshop is an opportunity to enhance dialogue among States, financial institutions, fuel producers and operators regarding access to financing for sustainable alternative fuels projects.
Building upon the achievements of the ICAO Workshop and Conference on Aviation and Alternative Fuels held in 2009, and the results of the 37th Session of the ICAO Assembly in 2010, this ICAO Workshop provides a forum for the exchange of information on the state of worldwide activities on sustainable alternative fuels for aviation. Among others, discussions will revolve around the state of the global harmonization of life cycle analysis methodologies, sustainability criteria, and legal and regulatory frameworks which ensure the availability of supplies of sustainable alternative fuels for aviation.
The Workshop, an important milestone in preparation for the upcoming United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in June next year, will also address the role of sustainable alternative fuels as part of the measures available to States for inclusion in their action plans to reduce CO2 emissions.
