Following the IATA Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) Special Interest Group report, the aviation fuel industry has collaborated to evaluate alternative technologies that can be fitted into existing fueling equipment. After rigorous evaluation, ATA103 is being modified to incorporate the second of these replacement technologies: the water barrier filter. Airlines for America (A4A) will continue working together with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Joint Inspection Group (JIG) to assess other replacement technologies for potential inclusion in ATA103.
