Summary

Agreement between BioFuelNet Canada, Airbus and Air Canada to develop advanced biofuels solutions for aviation

 
BioFuelNet Canada, a non-profit organization hosted by Montreal’s McGill University has signed an agreement with Air Canada and Airbus to explore advanced biofuel solutions for aviation. Research will focus on diverse raw materials, such as municipal solid waste and agricultural and forestry waste, as well as a range of conversion processes available for biofuel production. The ultimate goal is to determine which advanced biofuels are the most sustainable for aviation. 
 
BioFuelNet was launched in 2012 as part of the Federal Networks of Centres of Excellence program, which funds BioFuelNet through a $25 million grant over 5 years. BioFuelNet brings together 74 leading researchers working on advanced biofuels in Canada, as well as industry partners and government, in order to accelerate research, development, and commercialization of advanced biofuels. In its first year, BFN is funding 64 projects within the network’s four themes: Feedstock, Conversion, Utilization and SEES (Social, Economic and Environmental Sustainability).
