DISCUSSION: In recent years, there have been increasing concerns pertaining to the increasing influences of fossil fuel emissions from both commercial and private aviation sources. As a result of increasing international travel and a finite supply of fossil fuels as well as through having a thorough understanding of their environmental and net ecological impacts, there is a growing need to find a viable alternative to conventional jet fuel (i.e., conventional fuel for commercial as well as private aircraft) to mitigate the issues pertaining to consequences of fossil fuel emissions. Thus, in that light, scientists in various parts of the world (including many located in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates are finding ways to utilize seawater and sunlight to create various types of bio-fuels to help provide more sustainable and environmentally-friendly types of fuel to power both commercial and private aviation interests. Much of this research is being conducted by the the Integrated Seawater Energy and Agriculture System located in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates.
