Date: 2018-12-05
In the UK, air carrier British Airways, In collaboration with Cranfield University, is touting its new "BA 2119: Future of Fuels" challenge aimed at encouraging academics across the U.K. to develop a sustainable alternative fuel able to power a commercial aircraft on a long-haul flight, with up to 300 customers and zero net emissions. BA's challenge is the first time the industry has tasked experts from both aerospace and fuel fields to work in collaboration to tackle this environmental issue.

The Challenge winning team will receive £25,000 ($31,000) to support further research and a commitment from British Airways to work together to advance the idea. Nominations will be judged by a panel of industry experts based on the potential carbon reduction, innovation, value to the U.K. economy and feasibility of the idea.

As an early proponent of renewable jet fuels, IAG -- BA's parent company -- has committed to invest as much as $400 million on alternative sustainable fuel development over the next 20 years -- the highest ever financial commitment from an airline group.
