US airlines try biofuels
Article Type: News From:> International Journal of Climate Change Strategies and Management, Volume 4, Issue 1
Airlines won the backing of a US-based technical-standards group to power their planes with a blend of traditional fuel and biofuel from inedible plants, the Air Transport Association has stated. Fuel processed from organic waste or non-food materials, such as algae or wood chips, may comprise as much as 50 percent of the total fuel burned to power passenger flights, according to ATA and Boeing.
Other biofuels companies that may benefit from opening up the US$ 139 billion-a-year aviation fuel market are Neste Oil Oyj (NES1V) of Finland, Spains Abengoa SA and Honeywell International Inc. (HON)s UOP unit, which is developing a fuel-making technology.
