Boeing and Hawai’i BioEnergy to work together on aviation biofuel
Aircraft manufacturer Boeing and renewable energy supplier Hawai’i BioEnergy have announced plans to work together on creating aviation biofuel.
The two companies plans to work together to identify biofuel sources that can be grown in Hawaii, such as sorghum and eucalyptus, and used to produce sustainable jet fuel.
Hawaii depends on imported energy but has set an ambitious goal of achieving 70% clean energy by 2030.
“As an Asia Pacific gateway and leading tourism destination, Hawaii can play a meaningful role in helping aviation reduce carbon emissions, while increasing regional energy resources,” says Billy Glover of Boeing’s environment and aviation policy division.
