- British Airways has joined hands with LanzaJet to produce sustainable fuel for its fleet.
- The fuel produced by LanzaJet will help BA to reduce carbon emissions by 70%.
The International Consolidated Airlines Group SA (LON: IAG) owned British Airways has said it will start using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to operate its transatlantic flights by next year in a bid to lower its carbon footprint.
The airline company said it would partner with LanzaJet to produce sustainable aviation fuel. In return, BA will be investing in the new US plant, Freedom Pines Fuels facility, which LanzaJet is setting up in Georgia. The plant will manufacture fuel from ethanol extracted from agricultural and other residual waste. However, none of the companies disclosed the financial details of the deal.
