Reducing Airline Industry Carbon Emissions
In 2009, (photo) I joined the CEO of Alaska Airlines and leaders from Boeing and WSU to announce an initiative to develop a commercially viable aviation biofuel. Since then, a fuel has been approved for use and there have been successful test flights. Today, six years later, I was briefed on what we can learn from similar efforts in Oslo and Amsterdam. The Port of Seattle, where I've been focusing on environmental protections, wants to cut aircraft related carbon emissions by 25%.
