             abstract = "The aviation industry is committed to reducing its environmental 
                         impact and has established ambitious goals to decrease CO2 
                         emissions by 50% by to 2050. The replacement of fossil fuels by 
                         jet-biofuels is one of the main strategies to attain the emission 
                         targets. Therefore, the aim of this study was to provide a 
                         detailed survey on land availability for sugarcane production, one 
                         of the most promising feedstock options for jet-biofuels, in the 
                         Brazilian state of S{\~a}o Paulo, where the technological 
                         resources are concentrated. This analysis was carried out by 
                         integrating georeferenced information on land use, protected 
                         areas, soil fertility, terrain slope and climatic conditions into 
                         a conditional decision support procedure, based on Boolean 
                         inference techniques. Our results showed that 3,501,590 ha would 
                         be potentially available for sugarcane expansion in the year 2013. 
                         Almost 80% of the mapped lands have high economic potential once 
                         they are located in a distance lower than or equal to 25 km from 
                         the processing units. If properly included in the productive 
                         sector, the available lands could increase sugarcane production by 
                         73% in relation to current levels. That could lead to a growth of 
                         147% (20.6 billion liters) in the ethanol production compared to 
                         the production obtained in 2015. Nevertheless, long-term policies, 
                         logistic improvements and environmental standard definitions on 
                         jet-biofuels still remain as major challenges to boost feedstock 
                         production, as well as, to implement financial and regulatory 
                         measures necessary to promote jet-biofuels production and use.",
