NASA-Led Study Finds Aviation Biofuels Emit Up To 70 Percent Less Pollution

16 March 2017
GeekWire reports that in a NASA-led study published Wednesday in the journal Nature, scientists found that a DC-8 research jet powered by 50 percent biofuel emitted 50 to 70 percent less particle pollution compared to aircraft powered by traditional fuel alone. The flight tests were conducted in 2013 and 2014 as part of the Alternative Fuel Effects on Contrails and Cruise Emissions Study (ACCESS), and the results could provide “a potential boost” for an effort at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where the Port of Seattle, Alaska Airlines and Boeing are working to make biofuel readily available for flights.
