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.
