Virgin Atlantic is looking into the potential of making air travel significantly less detrimental to the environment.
Virgin and LanzaTech announced that they had produced an initial 1,500-gallons of Lanzanol (a low carbon jet fuel) in China, and the companies said that flight trials could start as early as next year.
In a statement , Virgin founder Richard Branson called the achievement:
[It’s] a real game changer for aviation and could significantly reduce the industry’s reliance on oil within our lifetime. Virgin Atlantic was the first commercial airline to test a bio-fuel flight and continues to be a leader in sustainable aviation.
