CSIRO: Biofuels promise cleaner, greener flight
Source : abc.net.au
The country's leading scientific body says cleaner, greener flight is possible with a new biofuel for airlines. The CSIRO has released a report which shows that, with oil around $US100 a barrel, lower emission jet fuels are economic for the Australian aviation industry. It predicts that 40% of an airline's fuel could be the lower emission biofuel by 2050. The CSIRO says the global airline industry emits 2% of carbon dioxide emissions a year. "Even though that sounds small the aviation industry acknowledges that it does need to look at reducing its emissions", said Paul Graham, the CSIRO's manager of carbon futures. The industry will need to work harder to do that as more and more people take to the skies.
