    The interest in aviation turbine fuels produced from non-petroleum feed stocks has increased recently due to concerns with the environmental impacts of aircraft operations. This has prompted the aviation fuels community to develop a qualification and certification process to support development and deployment of alternative jet fuels to facilitate the introduction of renewable fuels with reduced carbon footprints. This chapter describes how ASTM International standards are used to guide the testing, evaluation, review, and ultimate approval of synthesized hydrocarbons from non-petroleum sources for use in jet fuel. Each of the three currently approved materials is described. The requirements for each synthetic blend component as well as the semisynthetic blend are discussed.
