The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced a proposed determination that emissions of lead from aircraft that operate on leaded fuel cause or contribute to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health and welfare. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the aviation industry have set a goal and made a commitment to eliminate the use of leaded aviation gasoline (AvGas) by the end of 2030 without adversely affecting the safe and efficient operation of the existing piston-engine fleet. Achieving this goal will require airports to play a significant role, namely, taking steps to accommodate and offer unleaded AvGas while maintaining 100-octaine low-lead (100LL) availability.

Naples Airport and Fort Lauderdale International have been transitioning their systems to offer UL94 unleaded fuel and will share its program from implementation, lessons learned and the industry outlook.
