4 November 2016 – Last week’s 2016 CAAFI® Biennial General Meeting (CBGM) in Washington, DC was a great success, hosting over 200 participants, 48% of whom were first time attendees to a CBGM. If you attended the conference, thank you for making it an event to remember! The meeting included presentations and panelists from leading equipment manufacturers, fuel producers, airlines, and numerous government agencies. A variety of collaborative discussions also took place on the sidelines of the CBGM, including explorations between buyers and potential sellers of sustainable alternative jet fuel (SAJF).
The CBGM attendees were also honored to hear from VIP keynote speakers from the U.S. Navy, USDA, JetBlue, FAA, and NASA who offered praise on our progress to date, and encouragement and support for the challenges remaining to bring SAJF to commercial aviation. As evidenced by the progress and accomplishments discussed by the additional speakers and panelists at the meeting, the CAAFI community is making great strides in the deployment of SAJF. Stakeholders working in the public or private sector and all along the supply chain attended the CBGM, and their work is helping expand and strengthen CAAFI’s catalysis of the development and commercial deployment of SAJF for the aviation enterprise.
If you were not able to make it to CBGM or would like to review any presentations from the event, all materials are available on the CAAFI Presentations website.
