I know there is a great deal of work going into producing viable bio-Jet A - one particularly promising method based on using a feed stock derived from algae.
That being said, the production of bio Jet A is far different than what goes into bio-diesel and the like. A Dave T notes, there have been several test flights and feasibly demonstrations using bio Jet A, but we're still a ways from widespread adoption of its use.
I don't know enough about to know if bio Jet A retains meaningful amounts of bioethanol or FAME, but I do know that the people working the issue know that they need to address the issue of biological growth in bio fuel as it's stored.
