There are four stages to this initiative, implemented over a 12-month period:
During each stage, stakeholders will participate in working groups, with Oliver Wyman, a leading strategy consulting firm with broad aviation and energy industry expertise, providing program management.
Each stage will launch with kick-off meeting held for all stakeholders, followed by regularly scheduled calls and meetings throughout each stage of the effort. The initiative will result in a comprehensive feasibility study and action plan for the development and commercialization of advanced biofuels in the region.
The project will conclude with a published roadmap and action plan in the first half of 2013.
