Main – Travel – World’s first biofuel jet flight to take off in Canada @ Mon Sep 24 2012
OTTAWA, Sept 24 — The world’s first flight powered entirely by bio jet fuel will take off next month from Ottawa, the fuel makers have announced.
Applied Research Associates and Agrisoma Biosciences partnered with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) to develop a “sustainable source of renewable energy” for the commercial airline industry.
In late October, a NRC Falcon 20 twin engine jet will be used to test the new jet fuel made from 100 per cent oilseed, for engine performance and emissions.
“This will be the first time a jet aircraft is powered by 100 per cent, unblended, renewable jet fuel that meets petroleum jet fuel specifications,” the NRC said in a statement.
