"Boeing wants to establish new pathways for sustainable jet fuel, and this green diesel initiative is a groundbreaking step in that long journey," said Julie Felgar, managing director of Boeing Commercial Airplanes Environmental Strategy and Integration. "To support our customers, industry and communities, Boeing will continue to look for opportunities to reduce aviation's environmental footprint."
Green diesel, also called "renewable diesel," can be used in any diesel engine. It is chemically different and a different product than the fuel known as "biodiesel."
Boeing partners with airlines, engine makers, governments, fuel companies and research organizations around the world to commercialize sustainable jet fuel. Boeing and the 27 airlines in the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Users Group are committed to develop biofuel that is produced sustainably, without adverse impact to greenhouse gas emissions, local food security, soil, water and air.
