Source : biofuels-news.com
Interjet and Airbus tested their first jatropha-based biofuel flight in Mexico on 1 April 2011, using an Airbus A320 aircraft. The biofuel comes from the local region's jatropha plant which is harvested in the southern state of Chiapas, Mexico. The two companies say the main aim of the demonstration flight and the project was to speed up the commercialisation of aviation biofuel in the country. The A320 flight left from Mexico City's International Airport and flew to Angel Albino Corzo of Tuxtla Gutierrez airport in the southern State of Chiapas, with one of the two CFM engines using 30% biofuel. Miguel Aleman, Interjet president says: "The test flight is the realisation of a two year ambition for Interjet to develop a production chain for renewable biofuel, with the purpose of creating a Mexican platform for sustainable aviation bio-kerosene."
