Virgin planes to use green fuel (Eco news)

Virgin planes to use 'green' fuel
The Press Association reported

Sir Richard Branson has promised to introduce a new "green" aviation fuel on Virgin Atlantic planes within two to three years.

The Virgin boss announced the development with the LanzaTech company of low-carbon aviation fuel.

The technology involves waste gases from industrial steel production being captured, fermented and chemically converted using Swedish Biofuels technology for use as a jet fuel.

The revolutionary fuel production process recycles waste gases which would otherwise be burnt into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide.

Virgin said that within two to three years it was planning flights with the new fuel on its routes from Shanghai and Delhi to Heathrow as LanzaTech and partners develop facilities in China and India.
