Norway's Avinor obtaining tenders for how to establish local aviation biofuel production

Aviation biofuel is becoming big business. Over the past few years, a variety of airlines have tested drop-in biofuels, as part of the answer to the challenges of the price volatility of conventional fossil fuels and minimising the environmental impact of aviation. Life-cycle-assessments of biofuels have shown a wide range of net greenhouse gas savings compared to traditional fossil fuels.

Now Norwegian airports company and air navigation service provider Avinor has decided to get involved in a forward-looking biofuel programme. The ANSP announced at the end of Oct-2011 that it is obtaining tenders from consultant communities in Norway who will be tasked with investigating what it would take to establish commercially viable biofuel production for aviation in Norway.
