California Looks To Jet Fuel To Further Reduce Emissions

In light of its lofty greenhouse gas reduction goals, California is now turning to jet fuels as another area where it can curb emissions.

California's Air Resources Board is looking at how to encourage production of cleaner jet fuels under the state's Low Carbon Fuel Standard program, which aims to decrease greenhouse gas emissions from transportation fuels. The board is considering giving credits to alternative jet fuel producers.
