Biofueled Flights by 2025?

Posted in ideas, innovation by aldorf on October 29, 2010

According to the Wall Street Journal, Boeing is cooperating with Air China to test a commercial jet using biofuel produced in China. The biofuel is based on Jatropha, a thorny wild green shrub growing in hot climates.  PetroChina, foreseen as the fuel supplier, is already growing the plant in southern China. In addition to costly modification to airplanes there are some worries that biofuel could freeze before reaching cruising altitude – a claim dismissed by the industry.


In this regard, if you haven’t done it yet, watch “A Crude Awakening”/The Oil Crash
