European planes : Planes across Europe will soon run on eco-fuel made from vegetable oil and animal fat in an attempt to tackle climate change and toxic air. The new fuel will be mixed with traditional kerosene.European planes will run on the mixture of renewable and traditional fuel from next year from Geneva in Switzerland. The airport wants bio fuel to have a one percent share of sales at the airport for a start, according to Matti Leivonen, the CEO of Finnish company Neste that produces the fuel.
As well as he said that European planes will run just as smoothly and engine performance is even slightly improved. The Finnish Company claims that their company’s fuel emits up-to 40 percent less particulate matter, 10 percent less Nitrous Oxide and up to 90 percent fewer carbon emissions. The company says its fuel also comes in a form suitable for any traditional diesel engine, meaning it can be used in cars. The world’s first commercial bio fuel flight was performed by KLM, carrying 171 passengers from Amsterdam to Paris and running on waste vegetable oil.
