The Airbus aircraft was successfully operated on a combination fuel of cooking oil and fatty acids with the aim of reducing environmental mass.
Successfully landed after a 3 hour journey in the sky. Airbus named the aircraft the Zero-e Demonstrator, which was designed for testing.
The test was carried out by an Airbus aircraft on the 25th of last month in Toulouse, France. The Zero-E flight, which took off from Blacknock Airport in Toulouse at 8.43am, made a successful landing after a 3 hour journey.
Fuel containing cooking oil and fatty acids specially designed to operate this aircraft was manufactured by Total Energies in Normandy. This fuel is made from hydroprocessed esters, fatty acids, sulfur, and no fragrances.
This is the 3rd time that aircraft have been operated on behalf of Airbus with 100% sustainable aviation fuel called SAF. The Airbus aircraft was tested in March 2021 and the A319 aircraft in October 2021, powered by cooking oil fuel.
A statement from Airbus said, “Airbus is committed to reducing its carbon emissions. We need to zero carbon emissions by 2050. Fuels containing cooking oil and fatty acids play an important role in reducing carbon.
Currently, all Airbus aircraft are allowed to run on 50 percent kerosene mixed with aviation fuel. I hope to be fully powered by environmentally friendly SAF fuel in the next 10 years.
By 2019, 915 carbon aircraft will be released worldwide. In the transport sector, carbon emissions from vehicles are 74 percent, while aircraft make up 12 percent. By 2050 we will strive to create a zurocarbon position on behalf of airlines. This is a difficult goal and a challenge. ”
