WestJet and Alberta Innovates team to announce additional Canadian Incentive Program targeting SAJF development – the WestJet Aviation Biofuel Challenge

3 October 2018 - The recently announced WestJet Biofuel Challenge is intended to incentivize the use/development of existing or emerging technologies, using low-cost Alberta biomass, coupled with any other complementary, efficient technologies, with the goal of scaling up Alberta as a leader in the aviation biofuel industry. Alberta Innovates and partners will contribute up to $2 million for demonstration and small-scale production (approximately 10 liters) through an economical, bioconversion technology(s), that can use Alberta sourced feedstock leading to the production of a sustainable, certifiable, economic drop-in aviation biofuel. Please see the site here, and accompanying links for details on applicability and registration requirements.
