With the increase in pollution on earth, there are people working to save it. India’s first biofuel plane has recently made its maiden flight. The most common airlines, SpiceJet, along with the help of 500 farmer families have found a way of making use of biofuel to fly aeroplanes. This can change the entire air travel scenario in India with the help of further assistance.
India’s first biofuel plane
The use of harmful pollutants is harming the mother earth continuously. Without us realizing, this is sure to say that mother earth is on the verge of dying. And there is no doubt to fact that we are solely responsible for killing it, with pollution to be precise.
But, this 72-seater SpiceJet Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft, recently proved its success. Running on biofuel, the plane took off from Dehradun for a test flight and landed in Delhi. The plane is said to be working on a biofuel made from renewable sources like agricultural remains, non-edible oils, and fractions of industrial wastes. This biofuel makes air travel cheaper and more efficient by reducing the dependency on aviation turbine fuel.
According to NDTV, India’s first biofuel is by mixing of the oil extracted from Jatropha seers and aviation turbine fuel. In an environment that is increasing with pollutants day by day, this step is surely a welcoming move.
