Honeywell, Airbus, JetBlue, IAE Developing Aviation Biofuel

In partnership with Airbus, JetBlue Airways, and International Aero Engines, UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, and Honeywell Aerospace will study the use of sustainable biofuel in commercial aircraft, Honeywell announced.

In response to demands across the board for higher standards in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the companies will work on developing and testing renewable energy technology to convert bio-feed stocks to commercial aviation fuels, with an emphasis on “second-generation” feed stocks such as algae.

Along with Boeing and GE Aviation, Continental Airlines was the first airline to announce plans to conduct a biofuels demonstration flight, which would take place in early 2009.

In February, Virgin Atlantic flew one of its Boeing 747 jumbo jets on biofuel from London Heathrow to Amsterdam.

Earlier that month, Airbus completed the first civil aircraft test flight with alternative fuel.
