US air carrier United Airlines reports it plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 pct by 2050 and to that end will continue investing in newer, more fuel-efficient aircraft, implement operational changes to conserve fuel, and expand its use of aviation biofuels.

The airline also noted a recent Boeing 787 flight from San Francisco to Zurich using a 30/70 blend of biofuel and conventional jet fuel. The biofuel was produced from Carinata seeds by Quebec-based Agrisoma Biosciences Inc and supplied by AltAir Fuels.

According to United, the airline has sourced more than 2 million gallons of sustainable aviation biofuel since 2016 and is responsible for more than 50 pct of the airline industry's commitments to biofuel. Additionally, United was the first airline to regularly use sustainable aviation biofuel and has invested over $30 million in sustainable aviation fuels producer Fulcrum BioEnergy.
