Airbus Algae Jet Fuel

June 18, 2016

Aviation giant Airbus hopes algae can one day help power jets — and help airlines cut their CO2 emissions. They’re working with the Munich Technical University to cultivate the photosynthetic organisms in this lab. The company says the project remains in its infancy. “Algae fuel is still in the state of research, so today we could probably not offer it at costs which are realistic to run an airline. But we are sure that over time, we will make it possible to offer kerosene made of algae for a competitive price.” Researchers believe biofuel from algaculture could provide up to 5 percent of jetfuel needs by around 2050.
