Virgin Atlantic flies the first ever commercial flight using LanzaTech’s sustainable jet fuel | Virgin

Toerr@_de_N@die: What about reusing carbon-rich gases that go up the chimneys of steel and aluminium mills and giving them a second life? This is the Richard Branson's proposal and the first ever flight using this technology has just landed!
I was so proud to marshall the 747 into Gatwick and thank our team and customers for being a part of making aviation history. There was rapturous applause from the passengers and the crew – I could tell everyone was as excited as I was by the enormous potential of this new technology.
Reducing carbon is a major priority at Virgin Atlantic – we’ve already taken a number of steps to reduce CO2 emissions, but this flight is a huge step in making this new technology a mainstream reality. There is no immediate replacement for long haul travel – and this technology is ready now and would have a significant impact on our carbon footprint.
