On April 15, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced a five year extension of an agreement to develop commercial aviation biofuels. The goal of the collaboration is to produce 1 billion gallons of drop-in aviation biofuel annually by 2018 in order to decrease dependence on foreign oil, solve environmental issues, and stimulate the biofuels industry. The two departments previously had a three year agreement, the “Farm to Fly” initiative.
