Used Cooking Oil Equals Jet Fuel?

While the development of sustainable energy has long been tested for multiple uses, the commercial sector is now being developed. Boeing, world renowned aviation manufacturer, has plans to take the cooking oil waste from China and turn it into jet fuel. As the versatility of uses for this organic waste is endless, don't hesitate to have your Los Angeles Used Cooking Oil Disposal service regularly scheduled.
While fried food is considered a delicacy in China, there is no shortage of cooking oil waste to supply the need for Boeing's venture. Boeing's latest plan, which coincides with their prior commitment of making biofuel in the Middle East, is estimated to convert 500 million gallons of waste oil, or "gutter oil" as they commonly refer to it, into jet fuel. With the help of Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC), the new aviation facility has been presented to investors.
Ian Thomas, President of Boeing China stated “Strong and continuing teamwork between Boeing and COMAC is helping our industry make progress on environmental challenges that no single company or country can solve alone. By working together for mutual benefit, we’re finding innovative ways to support China’s aviation industry and build a sustainable future.”
The project, called China-U.S. Aviation Biofuel Pilot Project, is assumed to reduce carbon emissions by 50 to 80 percent throughout its life cycle, according to SustainaBlog. What's more, the Boeing Current Market Outlook estimated that 6,000 planes will need to be built by 2033 to keep up with demand for international and domestic travel, reinforcing the need for this sustainable fuel development.
