Japan Airlines has first ‘camelina’ biofuel test flight

The Boeing plane flew on biofuel made mainly from camelina, a non-food crop similar to jatropha.

The biofuel used in the flight is “a mixture of three second-generation biofuel feedstocks” of camelina, jatropha and algae, the airline said

“Second-generation feedstocks do not compete with natural food or water resources and do not contribute to deforestation practices,” the company said.

Imagine the transformation once biofuel becomes readily available. And it will.
