Description:

Aviation Low Emissions, Fuel Efficiency, and Renewable Fuels Measures are strategies that reduce GHG emissions from the aviation sector. These include demonstration projects of alternative fuels, direct investments in new public infrastructure to reduce fuel use, financial incentives for fuel efficiency improvement at airports, international collaboration to reduce air traffic emissions, and National emissions reduction goals. The U.S. Government has committed to carbon-neutral growth in aviation by 2020, which is expected to be achieved through a combination of new technologies, upgraded operational measures, and alternative fuels such as biofuels. National Programs to reduce aviation GHG emissions include the Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative (CAAFI), the Aviation Sustainability CENTer (ASCENT), the Asia and South Pacific Initiative to Reduce Emissions (ASPIRE), the Atlantic Interoperability Initiative to Reduce Emissions (AIRE), the Continuous, Lower Energy, Emissions and Noise (CLEEN) Program, the Aviation Fuel Efficiency Goal, and the Voluntary Airport Low Emission (VALE) Program.
