Continental Airlines Joins the Algae-Fuel Race

August 28th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Algae-Aviation-Fuel

Some airlines have been testing different types of biofuel to determine the viability of using sustainable alternatives  such as algae aviation fuel to the Jet-A1 (kerosene) fuel currently used by commercial aviation. Recently, a company called Solazyme has delivered about 1500 gallons of aviation fuel to the US military. Slowly, many other airlines are working on this already.

Continental Airlines have joined a group of aviation environmental leaders in testing a second-generation biofuel on one of its aircraft.  They plan to power their  Boeing 737-800 with algae and jatropha biofuel which will take-off from Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport on a two hour test.

The flight is one of a series of trials taking place around the world. This is the first test flight to take place in North America and the first to use a twin-engine aircraft.

Other airlines in this biofuel race include Boeing, Washington State University, and Alaska Airlines a Japan Airlines, Continental, Virgin Atlantic and Air New Zealand , all these folks have also been carrying out test flights with biofuels  over the last three years.
