Welcome to the Biofuel Age of Flight
Date:6/12/2009

Within three to five years, the first drops of sustainable aviation biofuels could be entering the tanks of aircraft, according to the Geneva-based Air Transport Action Group (ATAG). In order to inform industry employees and members of the flying public about this "new age in flight", the group this week launches a new publication, The Beginner's Guide to Aviation Biofuels.

Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) June 12, 2009 -- Within three to five years, the first drops of sustainable aviation biofuels could be entering the tanks of aircraft, according to the Geneva-based Air Transport Action Group (ATAG). In order to inform industry employees and members of the flying public about this "new age in flight", the group this week launches a new publication, The Beginner's Guide to Aviation Biofuels.

Paul Steele, Executive Director of ATAG, the only global organisation representing all parts of the commercial air transport sector, said, "We are standing at the beginning of a new era in aviation. For the first time we have identified a viable alternative to fossil fuels for commercial aviation. We have seen the age of flying boats, the jet age and the age of democratisation of air travel. In the next few years, we are preparing to enter the 'biofuels age' of flight."

In the last year, the industry has put major focus on the development of sustainable biofuel - a source of energy that could have around an 80 percent reduction in carbon lifecycle emissions compared to current fossil fuel based Jet A-1. There has been a series of successful test flights, with fuels being trialled from such diverse sources as camelina, jatropha and algae by Virgin Atlantic, Air New Zealand, Japan Airlines and Continental Airlines.
