Bio-Jet Fuel Approved For Use in Military Aircraft (E)
The home-grown technology of bio-jet fuel production developed by CSIR's Indian Institute of Petroleum, Dehradun has formally been approved for use in military aircraft of the Indian Air Force. This certification represents India's growing confidence in the aviation bio-fuels sector and is another step towards Atmanirbhar Bharat. Fuel being the lifeline of aircraft requires thorough analysis before being filled into manned flying machines. That’s why this technology has been extensively evaluatedand tested over the past three years. This approval has been given by the testing agencies after various ground and inflight tests. Compared to conventional jet fuel, this green fuel will reduce air pollution and contribute to India's net-zero greenhouse gas emission targets.
