56 Guidelines for Integrating Alternative Jet Fuel into the Airport Setting 5.2.4 Worksheet 4: Logistical Considerations Use this worksheet to evaluate the logistical considerations of alternative jet fuel projects. Instructions 1. Fill out Table 11 for the current way in which the airport is supplied with conventional jet fuel. This helps determine the baseline for comparing other options. Do not provide infor- mation in the grayed-out cells. 2. Fill out a separate Table 12 for each alternative jet fuel project under consideration. 3. Grade each option according to the following guidelines (see Section 3.5.3 for more details): Green: All or most transportation occurs by pipeline or rail/barge with minimal or no truck transportation; all transportation and storage infrastructure is in place. Yellow: Some truck transportation is required. Some minor transportation and storage infrastructure needs to be built. Red: Truck transportation over long distances is required. Major transportation and stor- age infrastructure elements need to be built. Note: It is important to compare the proposed options to the existing way of bring- ing jet fuel to the airport. For example, a yellow grade is appropriate if truck trans- portation is the only possibility for both the alternative jet fuel and the conventional jet fuel. 4. Fill in the appropriate circle in the "Green," "Yellow," or "Red" column in the "Logistical" row of "Worksheet 6: Evaluation Summary." Table 11. Current option--supply of conventional jet fuel to airport. Option: Current Supply of Conventional Jet Fuel Transportation Transportation Mode and Distance of Transportation Mode and Distance Infrastructure Feedstock To: of Conventional Jet Fuel from Processing Plant To: Intermediate Processing Plant Intermediate Airport Storage (If Needed) Storage (If Needed) Truck Rail Barge Pipeline Other Existing or new? Storage Storage of Feedstock At: Storage of Finished Conventional Jet Infrastructure Fuel At: Intermediate Processing Plant Intermediate Airport Location (If Storage (If Needed) Needed) Existing or new? Notes: - For transportation options, indicate approximate distances. Also, indicate if the airport expects to build any new transportation infrastructure in the foreseeable future. - Indicate if the airport expects to build any new storage infrastructure in the foreseeable future.
