This Plant-Based Jet Fuel Can Reduce Emissions by 68% – Without Displacing Crops

(Good News Network)  Replacing petroleum-based aviation fuel with a sustainable alternative derived from a type of mustard plant can reduce carbon emissions by up to 68%, according to new research from a University of Georgia scientist. Puneet Dwivedi led a team that studied the break-even price and lifetime carbon emissions
