Boeing 777 ecoDemonstrator arrives at FedEx hub flying on 100% biofuel

April 24, 2018 |

In Tennessee, the Boeing 777 ecoDemonstrator flying for the first time on 100% animal fat and beef tallow waste aviation biofuel touched down at FedEx’s Memphis hub on Sunday to commemorate Earth Day where it was open for tours on Monday. Typically aviation biofuels only go up to 50% blends with fossil-based A1 jet fuel but the 100% biofuel flight was meant to demonstrate FedEx’s commitment not only to innovation but also to its goal of using 30% aviation biofuel by 2030.
