Boeing, Honeywell to Study Biofuels in Mexico

A group led by Boeing and Honeywell’s UOP announced a collaboration to further the development of commercially viable market for Mexico-sourced sustainable aviation biofuels. The group includes the Airports and Auxiliary Services agency (ASA), an arm of Mexico’s Ministry of Communications and Transport. “Working together, we are assessing the potential for large-scale production of aviation fuels made from sustainable biomass systems such as halophytes, algae, jatropha, castor and other so-called next-generation biomass-for-energy systems,” said Darrin Morgan, director of Biofuel Strategy for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. According to an announcement by Boeing, ASA, Boeing and UOP agreed to commission initial studies on promising biomass systems for Mexico and to formalize this collaboration with a commitment to work via the Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels, a global multistakeholder initiative developing a global biofuel sustainability framework.
