The cost, availability, and sustainability of feedstocks are key to successfully producing aviation biofuels. There are numerous routes to aviation fuels, and as such, it is likely that multiple feedstocks will be used globally to produce future aviation biofuels. In this chapter, a general overview of all the major feedstocks available, where they are regionally produced, the challenges inherent in increasing production to necessary levels, and key forecasts for bioenergy use ahead to 2050, will be presented and briefly discussed.
