BioFuelNet signs deal with Air Canada and Airbus for aviation biofuels

May 14, 2013 |

In Canada, BioFuelNet has signed an agreement with Air Canada and Airbus to help them find the most promising biofuels for aviation. Air Canada and Airbus are part of a broad coalition, which has pledged Carbon Neutral Growth from 2020 and to reduce greenhouse emissions by 50 per cent by 2050.

BioFuelNet Canada, a not-for-profit organization hosted by Montreal’s McGill University, will assess the viability of various Canadian advanced biofuels solutions for aviation. Their research will focus on diverse raw materials, such as municipal solid waste and agricultural and forestry waste, as well as a range of conversion processes available for biofuel production. The ultimate goal is to determine which advanced biofuels are the most sustainable for aviation. The agreement was signed at BioFuelNet’s headquarters in the Quartier de l’innovation (QI) in Montreal, on the 13th of May 2013, the day of the official QI launch.
