The U.S. Air Force, after significant testing, has approved the use of a 50% blend of biofuel and jet fuel in its C-17 Globemaster III, a large transport plane in heavy use to move troops and cargo. After testing, the USAF found absolutely no degredation in performance or maintenance needs from the biofuel blend. In addition, the biofuel blend burns cleaner and emits less sulfer compounds than regular JP-8 jet fuel. The Air Force doesn’t need to make any modifications to the planes in order to use the biofuel – it’s a true drop-in solution.
