Biojet fuels have the potential to make an important contribution towards decarbonising the aviation sector. Biojet Fuel in Aviation Applications: Production, Usage and Impact of Biofuels covers all aspects of this sustainable aviation fuel including aviation biofuel public policies, production technologies, physico-chemical properties, combustion performances, techno-economics of sustainable fuel production, sustainability and energywater-food (EWF) nexus. This must-have book also charts the current state of the industry by discussing the relevant industry players who are currently producing alternative aviation fuels and flight tests, while also providing a glimpse of the future of the industry. This comprehensive book is written for undergraduate students, postgraduate students, researchers, engineers and policy makers wanting to build up knowledge in the specific area of biojet fuel or the broader fields of sustainable energy and aeronautics.  

Key Features

  • Reviews major aviation and biojet fuel policies, legislations, initiatives and roadmaps around the world
  • Features existing and emerging biojet fuel production pathways from various feedstocks
  • Highlights the key properties of biojet fuels that ensures inter-operability with conventional jet aviation fuel
  • Discusses the economic aspects of the biojet fuel industry and the barriers preventing its commercialisation
  • Examines the sustainability of biojet fuel from a life cycle assessment, energy balance and EWF nexus point of views


Graduate students and researchers focused on material behavior under elastic-plastic strain, uniaxial, and multiaxial fatigue loading. Professional engineers
