Airlines Running on Biofuel

Hosted by ,

Remember when people were running their old diesel Mercedes on used fryer oil? Well, United Airlines today announced that it plans to invest $30 million in Fulcrum BioEnergy, a California company that turns trash into fuel. Sometime this summer, the airline will start a regular flight between LA and San Francisco powered, at least partly, by biofuels.
