Iberia has teamed up with Spanish airports operator AENA and AlgaEnergy to establish a microalgae-based biofuel research project at Madrid Barajas Airport. The facility, in which an initial €600'000 ($539'622) has been invested, will be located near the airport's Terminal 4 and will become operational next month.
