Commercial Airlines Have Found A Greener Fuel Solution
While more sustainable aviation fuels are a worthwhile endeavor, it isn’t the fuel itself that’s going to have less of an impact on the environment. While there is evidence to suggest that these kinds of alternate formulas cut back on the density of contrails, which could slightly reduce their effect in general, the real environmental shift comes from the process of creating these fuels.
Basically, the act of making jet fuel creates a lot of air pollution — and Air Company’s CO2 refinement process, coupled with its use of renewable energies, results in far less carbon being expelled (comparatively).
Another benefit of production is that it can be set up to source carbon emissions from power plants. Or potentially anything that produces large amounts of CO2, really. So, assuming the technology is working as advertised, it’s effectively intercepting pollutants and converting them into fuel (or hand sanitizer, perfume, or vodka), in a process that claims to have a minuscule carbon footprint of its own.
