The Agriculture Department, in conjunction with the Boeing Company and Airlines for America, released a report January 18 finding that the Federal Aviation Administration’s target for the U.S. aviation industry to use 1 billion gallons of alternative fuel per year is 2018 is achievable, but that more investment is needed. The report, Agriculture and Aviation: Partners in Prosperity, concluded that government efforts to date have not emphasized research, development, or commercialization of biofuels for aviation, compared to investments in fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel for other forms of transportation. The U.S. Air Force plans to convert half of its annual supply of petroleum based jet fuel to other fuels by 2016, and the Navy has announced a goal of supplying 50 percent of its total energy consumption from alternative sources by 2020.
