NASA test: Jet biofuel may reduce climate-warming clouds
Description: Research tests of jet planes in flight conditions show that blending standard jet fuel with biofuel reduces emission of soot particles from jet engines. With fewer soot particles, it is likely but not yet proven that jet planes would form thinner, less dense contrails and cirrus clouds, which would reduce their contribution to global warming. Further tests are planned. [Source: NASA Climate Change News]
