Pioneering project – from 15 July 2011, Lufthansa is using biosynthetic kerosene as a fuel
Starting on 15 July 2011, Lufthansa will use biofuel in an Airbus A321 on its regular scheduled flights between Hamburg and Frankfurt for a six-month period. On this service, one engine will be using a fuel blend containing 50 percent biosynthetic kerosene. The key objective of this project is to conduct a long-term test during which the impact of biofuels on the maintenance and efficiency of jet engines can be investigated. During this trial period, savings of around 1500 tons of carbon dioxide are expected.
