Qatar Airways, Airbus to develop aviation biofuels

Qatar, which holds the world’s largest proven reserves of liquefied natural gas (LNG), is to develop sustainable biofuels for the aviation industry in an initiative led by Qatar Airways. Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said “where world leaders had failed in Copenhagen, my small country of Qatar leads the way”. The initiative with the Qatar Science & Technology Park, Qatar Petroleum and Airbus will use biofuels, which will be produced from fuel stocks that have no effect on the food chain or the water supply.
