Reducing CO2 emissions from the new generation aeroplanes has always been a headache for the researchers, as the planes contribute to more than 2% of the global carbon emissions and the aviation industry is growing rapidly. It was Virgin Atlantic who had flown a commercial flight with biofuel way back in 2008. Though it was only a small percentage of coconut and babassu oil mixture which was added to the regular aviation fuel. (more…)

After thorough research and survey, biofueled jet planes have proven to be very effective, and environmental-friendly in the aviation industry. This is because the fuel consumed by these planes is easily renewable and doesn’t seem to pose any difficulties. Thanks to the new technology invented by the scientists, the few challenges that are posed by these jet planes have been quickly and tactfully resolved. The scientists have implemented the greenhouse cycle to make these biofueled jet planes a success. This technique has the power to produce automotive lubricant as well as biodegradable aviation oil. These products are being created by combining various chemical catalysts and implementing it using the greenhouse effect. (more…)
