United 787 to make SFO-Zurich biofuel flight

Hình ảnh có liên quan

United Airlines Boeing 787 will fly from San Francisco (SFO) to Zurich on Sept. 14-15 powered by a blend of biojet fuel derived from carinata, an oilseed crop that can be grown in rotation with food crops.

The General Electric GENx-powered 787 will use a blend of 30% biofuel with conventional jet fuel. The biojet was produced by the former AltAir Fuels refinery in California, acquired in March by World Energy.

Agrisoma Biosciences, a Canadian company that sells carinata seeds, partnered with United and World Energy to conduct the transatlantic commercial biofuel flight.
