The aviation industry connects a world of people, services, and goods through the heartland of the country, providing jobs and contributing significantly to the regional economy. The industry is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to reduce its environmental impact while continuing to provide a vital service to the communities it serves. Aviation biofuels have the potential to deliver environmental benefits while also creating home-grown jobs and new market opportunities here in the U.S.

The Midwest Aviation Sustainable Biofuels Initiative (MASBI) is designed to leverage regional assets and stakeholders from across the biofuel value chain to develop a sustainable Midwestern biofuels market for the benefit of the region and the nation overall.
