(China Airlines) China Airlines is support global carbon reduction initiatives through direct action by participating the biofuel program being jointly developed by Airbus and Air TOTAL. The 10th new A350 aircraft being ferried back to Taiwan will have Sustainable Aviation/Alternative Fuels (SAF) added to effectively reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by around 20,000 kg. The move will help lower global greenhouse gas emissions, and make China Airlines the first carrier in Taiwan to use SAF.
The 10th China Airlines A350 being flown from Toulouse to Taiwan on November 30 France time is taking part in Airbus and Air TOTAL’s joint biofuel program. The fuel has received the international certificate of sustainability (COS) for its ability to effectively reduce GHG emissions and environmental impact. Its use on China Airlines’A350-900 energy-saving aircraft will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 30% and set a new milestone for Taiwanese carriers.
