Airplane BioFuelHere‘s a nice resolution for this story we ran a few days ago: airplane emissions may be cut drastically in a few years. Boeing announced yesterday that within three years their airplanes could be fueling up with biofuels. The approval for the commercial use of biofuel is coming together much quickly than previously anticipated, according to Boeing environmental experts. The funny thing is, the problem isn’t adapting the planes to run on alternate fuel – it’s harvesting enough plant material to create the fuel. To fill up 13,000 commercial jets with soya-bean based fuel would require farmland equivalent in size to Europe for production. So, is it actually a good thing for planes to switch to biofuel? I’m not sure. But, if such a staggering statistic doesn’t make you wonder about the efficiency of biofuels, I’m not sure what will.
