The article discusses a decision by United Airlines to purchase what the author calls bio based ATSM spec Jet-A fuel. The article states that the purchase was based upon the condition that the fuel will result in reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from aircraft engines. It also discusses the successful conversion of ethanol to Jet-A was successful in meeting United's requirements.
