Food waste to be converted into aviation fuel to reduce carbon emissions

For a better and more sustainable future, waste obtained from food and animal are now being transformed into paraffin. In this experimental process, the waste which is usually turned into methane gas is now producing volatile fatty acids (VFA).

Can you believe if we say food can be transformed into fuel? Interesting right?  In order to choose healthier alternatives and take a green step towards emitting lesser carbon emissions scientists are researching the feasibility of using biofuel, which will help to reduce the carbon footprint of aeroplane fuel by 165 per cent. 

According to a report in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, plane fuel made from food waste could reduce flying emissions drastically. Researchers have mentioned that organic waste can be converted into paraffin, a kerosene-like fuel used in jet engines.

For a better and more sustainable future, waste obtained from food and animal are now being transformed into paraffin. In this experimental process, the waste which is usually turned into methane gas is now producing volatile fatty acids (VFA). Experts say that they wish to examine the new fuel production and to test flights with Southwest Airlines in 2023.

Reportedly, in January airline company Boeing reported that they will deliver commercial airplanes, capable of flying on 100% biofuel by the end of this decade.
