RenewableJetFuels.org evaluates supply chain companies on three principle criteria: Economic Viability, Scalability and Sustainability.
The Carbon War Room has established Economic Viability, Scalability and Sustainability as the three principal criteria on which we, and an international team of experts, evaluate renewable jet fuel supply chain companies. The sub-criteria for each of these principal criteria are listed below with examples of some of the indicators used to determine sub-criteria scores.
Companies are scored under each criterion and sub-criterion with one, two or three stars. These are relative scores, meaning the top one third of companies for a given criterion will be awarded three stars, the middle third will be awarded two stars, and so on. As companies, technologies, and the market evolve, the relative positions of each company under each criterion will shift accordingly.
In releasing a beta website with company rankings we are drawing initial conclusions based on rapidly changing market information. We invite: 1) input that updates or completes company/product information already collected; and 2) input regarding companies/products that we do not currently have. To be included in the database, please submit a request to email@example.com.
There are five possible reasons for a company not appearing in the rankings:
- Company did not rank top ten
- Company is too early in development to rank (i.e. pre-pilot plant)
- Organization declined to share data
- The rankings team was unable to contact company or find sufficient publicly available information to fill data gaps
- The company plays a role in the supply chain not conducive to side-by-side ranking comparisons (i.e. companies that license certain technologies to a number of fuel producers who were ranked)
If you have questions about which companies were ranked and what data was made publicly available, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
