Aerion plans to develop supersonic planes flying on 100% bio-SPK

March 28, 2019 |

In the UK, Reuters reports that Aerion plans to develop a supersonic plane that is flown completely on bio-based synthetic paraffinic kerosene with a $120 million price tag each. With the first jets set to hit the skies in 2023, they would fly 70% faster than normal subsonic planes now while using biofuels would reduce CO2 emissions by 40%. The company recently received an undisclosed amount of investment from Boeing. Supersonic planes have higher fuel burns than subsonic which is why CO2 emissions are a concern.
