Boeing, GOL Collaborate On Biofuels

Boeing is to work with GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes in a bid to accelerate the research, development and approval of new sources of sustainable aviation biofuel in Brazil. The collaboration will support GOL’s plans to use biofuel on more flights during upcoming major sporting events, and a longer-term aim of developing a new sustainable aviation biofuel industry in Brazil. GOL plans to use sustainable biojetfuel on 200 flights during the 2014 football World Cup and to incorporate biofuel into 20 per cent of its flights during the Rio Olympics in 2016. Boeing will first work with GOL to identify and select the most promising feedstocks and refining technologies.
