Experimental flight using biofuel

The next Friday, August 09, a jet of Purdue University in the U.S. state of Indiana, will fly using biofuel on a trip to the Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

This is the first flight with a small jet of this size using biofuel made from a small plant called camelina, said David Stanley, co-director of the Research Center AirTies Purdue.

If the flight is successful, will open the way for using biofuels in the near future by the U.S. Air Force.

This type of initiative is important because studies indicate that carbon emissions in the stratosphere during the flights are even more destructive and its impact is even greater on global warming.
