  • 28-Oct-2009 02:39 EDT

Boeing, Mexico’s Airports and Auxiliary Services agency (ASA), and Honeywell’s UOP formed a collaboration to identify, research, and further the development of a market for Mexico-sourced sustainable aviation biofuels. Boeing, ASA, and UOP agreed to commission initial studies on promising systems for Mexico and to formalize this collaboration with a commitment to work via the Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels, a global multistakeholder initiative developing a global biofuel sustainability framework. Halophytic plants will be the first research target. Study elements will include evaluating aquaculture management and practices, assessing land use and energy requirements, and identifying any potential adverse ecological or social impacts associated with using halophytes.
