Boeing and Hawai'i BioEnergy to work on renewable biofuel for aviation

  • 16-Nov-2011 08:12 EST

Boeing formed a collaborative agreement to work with Hawai'i BioEnergy on renewable energy sources for creating aviation fuel. Boeing and Hawai'i BioEnergy will look at various crops including sorghum and eucalyptus as potential sources that can be grown locally and converted to jet fuel. The collaboration will also look to assess new supporting technologies for aviation biofuel production. Being an island state with a strong U.S. military presence and a dependency on imported energy, Hawaii's bioenergy development initiatives can help create new regional resources, while providing a boost to the local economy.
