Cathay Pacific to fly on 50% biojet from US to Hong Kong by 2018

January 31, 2017 |

In Hong Kong, Cathay Pacific aims for its flights from the US to Hong Kong to run on a 50% biojet mix by 2018 in an attempt to reduce GHG emissions by 80%. Following an agreement signed with the airline in 2014, Fulcrum Bioenergy will supply the aviation biofuel produced from municipal solid waste to buy 375 million gallons of fuel over 10 years, but the volume is only enough to supply its 76 weekly flights from the US to Hong Kong during six months, meaning it will need to find another source of biofuel to reach its commitments.
