Canadian carrier WestJet has signed an agreement with Alberta-based Clean Energy Technology Centre (CETC) to develop sustainable aviation biofuel in Western Canada.

WestJet will work with CETC at the centre in Drayton Valley on developing clean energy products and solutions with the aim of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the aviation industry.

Geoffrey Tauvette, WestJet director, environment and fuel, said: “Our fleet investment over the last 15 years has improved our fuel efficiency by almost 50 per cent. The natural next step for us was getting actively involved in tapping Western Canada’s innovation potential in developing scalable, affordable and sustainable aviation biofuels."
