Here’s a post that talks about the recent and sudden focus that the aviation industry has acquired for algae-based biofuels. The International Air Transport Association is backing the use of second and third generation biofuels to lower jet emissions — and they have set their target on algae. Unfortunately, algae biodiesel is decades and billions of dollars away, feels this post.

While some fuel savings can be achieved by streamlining operations and reducing weight, the IATA is looking to reach emission gains and create feel-good PR for international aviation. The IATA’s Green Vision, or its plan to green the industry, would like to see “zero emission” jets by 2050, but has a short-term goal of 10 percent biofuel use by 2013.

The IATA’s desire for biofuels isn’t coming completely out of left field. Airlines like Virgin Atlantic, Air New Zealand and Lufthansa are trying out biofuel mixes with engine builders, mostly from the usual farm-raised crops like corn. But algae as a power source is mostly limited to government labs, where NASA is partnering with Boeing to study algae biodiesel.
