Articles from TravelPriceCompare.com: Biofuel Powers Aviation Sector
What looked like a mere dream and an on paper idea few years back has become
a reality now. Thanks to the Green energy and means which have empowered the
aviation sector. UOP has achieved a breakthrough solution for powering the jets
with bio fuel. This is derived from camelina, inedible plant that grows on left
over crop land and fallows. It is mixed with regular jet fuel in a 50-50
proportion. The final product can be used to power jet engines.
KLM spearheaded the invention and became the first aviation company to test
out the thumping power generated from the natural means. Bio fuel is sure to
replace the traditional fuel. During the course of time more research on bio
fuel and other green energy substitutes are sure to drive the aviation industry.
The long term gains are immense, airliners might end up paying a lot lesser for
the natural fuel as compared to the traditional fuel. The green innovation will
in turn provide a win-win proposition for both passengers and airliners. With
increased traction and higher gains, bio fuel can enable the growth of airliners
in the competitive arena to newer heights.
This green breakthrough innovation is certainly commendable for those who
have put in their efforts and energy in the green mission. It would provide a
new meaning and direction to the aircraft manufacturers too. Boeing and Airbus
primarily have to manufacture best in class green designs to meet the need of
the hour. More we support green, more harmony we can expect to spread around the
And that's not all! More research is been made to draw conclusions if bio
fuel can enable faster engine and propellant performance. We might be able to
achieve more breakthroughs in this segment especially in terms of covering the
distances between two destinations in a faster way.
Bio Fuel has opened newer avenues of innovation and opportunities for the entire
world. Service providers will benefit from the low fuel cost, passenger will
benefit from lesser ticket price and faster aircraft performance. It is just the
matter of time when we will see a bio fuel enabled greener aircraft performance.
Aviation industry is all set to take off in the long term.
