China, Airbus Push Biofuel Development

from Travel Daily

Airbus has formed a partnership with one of China's main academic institutions to study the advancement of aviation biofuels. A joint project between the European planemaker and Beijing's Tsinghua University is already underway to identify and develop alternative fuels in China. In phase one, the partners will assess suitable materials to be used as the basis for biofuels. Once these have been identified, phase two will narrow down the most promising alternative fuel solutions. The first results are due to be analyzed in the second half of 2012, with the goal of completing full sustainability analysis by the beginning of 2013. Two main fuel sources identified so far include used cooking oil and algae. From 2013 onwards, Airbus and Tsinghua University will look at scaling-up the production process to achieve quantities suitable for commercial use. more
