Boeing, Hawai’i BioEnergy Team Up to Find Renewable Sources for Aviation Fuel

A new collaboration has been formed to work towards creating renewable energy sources for aviation fuel.

Boeing and Hawai’i BioEnergy will together to examine various crops such as eucalyptus and sorghum as potential sources to be converted to jet fuel, according to a Boeing release.

The collaboration announcement prefaces an upcoming conference, the Asia Pacific Economic Conference CEO Summit, which Boeing reports will include an element of how companies could work together in order to identify alternate sources for biofuel and technologies specifically in Hawaii.

“Hawaii can play a meaningful role in helping aviation reduce carbon emissions, while increasing regional energy resources,” said Billy Glover, vice president of environment and aviation policy for Boeing’s commercial airplanes business. “This collaborative effort will allow us to examine potential local options, while protecting the beauty and culture these islands have to offer.”
