Biodiesel Use in Aviation
Boeing is doing research and performing tests of biodiesel use in aviation. The Department of Defense is also doing research and performing tests in aviation use of biodiesel. What is the status and when can we expect to have our flight to New York fueled with biodiesel?

Boeing’s Darrin Morgan, Director, Sustainable Biofuels Strategy for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, will speak about the use of biodiesel in aviation. Darrin leads strategy development and execution for Boeing Commercial Airplanes' Sustainable Aviation Fuels Program. In addition, Darrin is a co-founder of the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Users Group, whose members account for more than 15 percent of global jet fuel demand and whose goal is to diversify aviation's fuel supply, while also reducing the industry's lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, he has served as co-chairman of the world's first global algae-for-energy trade association, the Algal Biomass Organization and on the National Academies of Science Transportation Review Board Panel on alternative fuels integration.

Darrin is at the forefront of biodiesel use and research in aviation. This is a unique opportunity to learn about biodiesel use in aviation, and Boeing's leadership in this field.
