Boeing and Virgin Atlantic to work on biofuels for aircraft
The environmental work between the two companies will focus on developing biofuels that can be used as commercial jet fuel. The first demonstration is scheduled for next year using one of Virgin's Boeing 747-400s and also includes engine supplier General Electric. Virgin and Boeing are also studying how to update ground operations at airports to reduce fuel use during idling and taxiing.
