China conducted its first demonstration flight powered partly by biofuel, reported the China Daily at the end of October. The China-grown jatropha-based biofuel powered one of four engines on an Air China 747-400 jet. The trial was part of a Sino-US energy cooperation programme. In the project PetroChina CO. Ltd., Chinas largest oil producer, workes with UOP LLC, a subsidiary of Honeywell’s special materials section, to source and refine the biofuel.
Despite the successful demonstration flight, commercial flights on biofuels are still a few years away, as the airlines say. A large scale production of biofuels is needed. Besides jatropha algae could be an alternative. But it is still in lab researching phase.
