A Boeing 787 Dreamliner ANA flew on biofuel
We can say that we are at the beginning of a new era in the world of civil aviation. The airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Boeing today wrote a tab in aviation history by making the first biofuel flight.
An aircraft Boeing 787 Dreamliner has departed from the Boeing Delivery Center in Everett, Washington for Tokyo-Haneda. It was supplied with a biofuel made largely from cooking oil. CO2 emissions were about 30% lower compared to the emissions of the aircraft (we are talking about the same class in size) currently used. Percentage means: 10% CO2 reductions by using biofuel and 20% reduction by technology and efficiency offered by 787 Dreamliner.
Airplane delivery Boeing 787 Dreamliner to the Japanese operator ANA also meant the first transpacific flight made with biofuel.
Boeing is one of the big aviation companies looking for alternative fuel solutions as part of its carbon reduction strategy. Plus, the biofuel can be cheaper than the currently used kerosene and it would save more from the bankrupt airlines.
