Etihad launches initiative on sustainable aviation fuel to decarbonize flights

Sustainable aviation fuel, which is sourced from biological materials, has great carbon reduction potential. However, airlines' reluctance to spend more on fuel is hampering its development, according to some observers.

Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways announced yesterday a new initiative to promote greater sustainability and carbon reduction in air travel. 

Etihad signed a memorandum of understanding with Boston-based World Energy to establish a “long-term partnership” to decarbonize flights. World Energy’s efforts in this regard focus on sustainable aviation fuel, according to a press release.
