Air New Zealand Completes Flight Powered By Jatropha Biofuel

Air New Zealand utilized a biofuel blend of 50:50 jatropha and Jet A1 fuel to power one of the Air New Zealand Boeing 747-400’s Rolls-Royce RB211 engines. The Boeing 747 flew for two hours.

Jatropha plants grow up to three meters and produces inedible fruits, which contain oil. It is grown on arid and marginal land in India, parts of Africa and other countries, and has been touted for mass production for biofuels because it does not compete for resources with food crops.
