Aviation represents a small but growing share of global CO2 emissions (2-3%), and Southeast Asia is where this industry grows the fastest. The industry targets 50% reduction in net CO2 emission by 2050, and will need at least 2 million tonnes of biofuel by 2020. The book examines various pathways from biomass to bio-jetfuel. It assesses potential feestocks and other non-aviation biofuels. Malaysian oil palm, paddy, rubberwood, sugarcane, coconut, and wood biomasses are detailed, analysed and quantified. Best feedtsocks for bio-jetfuel are ranked according to sustainability. Life Cycle Analysis is detailed with the case of paddy. Logistics and transportations botlenecks are discussed. The socio-political at Malaysia and international scale are examined in order to put these results in perspective.
