Virgin flights to use fuel from waste gas by 2014

12 October 2011

Virgin Atlantic plans to start using a low-carbon jet fuel derived from waste gases released during industrial steel production on certain commercial flights by 2014.

The technology, developed with energy firm LanzaTech, will capture waste gases from industrial production, then ferment and chemically convert them using technology by the company Swedish BioFuels for use as jet fuel.

In two to three years, Virgin plans to use the new fuel on its routes from Shanghai and Delhi to London Heathrow.
