New York Times laud farnesane in Amyris-Total development

October 12, 2014 |

In New York, The New York Times in writing about the Amyris-Total renewable jet fuel, said “fuels like farnesane hold the elusive promise of better energy security, reduced carbon emissions and lower fuel costs.

The Times added: “The global aviation industry has also set ambitious goals to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, including slashing emissions by 50 percent by 2050 compared with 2005. To achieve these targets, renewable fuels could be one part of the puzzle. Farnesane can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80 percent compared with petroleum fuels, when compared unmixed to petroleum fuels on a one-to-one basis, according to Amyris. Renewable fuels like farnesane ‘would help reduce the carbon footprint of commercial aviation,’ the Federal Aviation Administration said.”
