Bulgaria: US Airline is Beginning to Use Fuel Made from Recycled Garbage www.pixabay.com

US air carrier JetBlue is beginning to use recycled fuel to cause less environmental damage. The innovative solution is part of a major plan by the company to support nature conservation, writes BBC.

JetBlue has announced that they’ll carbon offset all of their domestic flights as of July 2020.

The fuel is produced by the Finnish company Neste (the world’s largest producer of renewable diesel, and a pioneer in renewable jet fuel). It is produced by the separation and recycling of waste and emits up to 80% less harmful substances in the atmosphere than traditional aircraft fuel.

As a beginning, the modern substance will be part of the fuel of the company's flights from San Francisco International Airport.

JetBlue operates 17 flights a day from the California city, and the addition of "clean" fuel will not be charged to the ticket price for passengers.

The airline industry has been criticized for its contribution to the greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

As part of the pollution program they are creating, JetBlue has announced that it will fund projects to build solar and wind farms where hydrocarbons are still being used.
