Early in December The Carbon War Room launched a great new initiative with Renewable Jet Fuels. The initiative is aimed at driving the development of low carbon jet fuels forward by following the progressions of 40 companies planning commercial scale renewable fuel production aviation. The Carbon War Room is a not-for-profit organisation that’s been set up to try to get 25 Gigatons of carbon out of the earth's atmosphere, or a Gigaton from each of the main carbon emitting industries without damaging those industries.
If successful in getting 25 Gigatons out we can balance the earth's atmosphere. Renewable Jet Fuels collaborates with the airline industry in working out which clean fuels will be the fuels of the future and emit the least carbon along with focusing on those that won’t eat into food supplies. In Response to this Virgin a leader in this field has said that airlines and aviation can go from a polluting industry to one of the cleanest in the world within 10 years. Unlike other industries it only has 1800 fuel pumps to fuel the world's aeroplanes and therefore once clean fuels are ready for delivery it is easy to transform the whole industry.
