Historic Flight: Commercial Jet Flies on 100 Percent Biofuel

Submitted by on May 11, 2018 – 5:14 pmNo Comment

by Glenn Farley (K5 News)  In the Boeing test, a 777 freighter, ran on residual animal fats and plant oils. — In a historic first, Boeing has flown the first commercial jet on 100 percent biofuel. The flight was Seattle to Memphis and back — all without using petroleum.

The test was conducted on a 777 freighter, using two General Electric 90-115B engines. Each is the width of a 737 and creates 115,000 pounds of thrust.  The biofuel it ran on is a blend of residual animal fats and plant oils.  They are refined into a molecule that matches Type A jet fuel.

This biofuel actually has three to four percent more energy in it per gallon than regular jet fuel. That means the plane can fly much farther than one that uses standard fuel.  READ MORE includes VIDEO
