According to Bloomberg, the two companies have agreed to collaborate on programmes to ensure the availability of renewable fuel that will help reduce the industry’s carbon dioxide emissions.

Boeing head of commercial environmental strategy and integration Julie Felgar said, “Sustainable aviation biofuel will play a central role in reducing commercial aviation’s carbon emissions over the long term, and we see tremendous potential for these fuels in Africa.” 

Boeing said that more than 1,500 commercial flights have used biofuels over the years, which emit less carbon dioxide than conventional fuels.
