Major investments in sustainable aviation fuel from United Airlines could set the path for greener air travel.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that the aviation industry is one of the most significant polluters when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. Not only is this industry responsible for a huge amount of CO2 emissions, but it adds further damage by releasing it so high up in the atmosphere.
And that’s why United Airlines has announced a new joint venture to develop sustainable aviation fuel. While such ethanol-based fuel already exists, it hasn’t been commercially viable until now.
A Reuters report highlighted some interesting facts about the expected benefits.
Making such a significant breakthrough will then hopefully further transition into mass-production of such fuels for a wide range of other industries.
It’s a critical part of creating a sustainable future in areas where electric power that relies on batteries isn’t a feasible solution.
