British Airways Plans To Turn Trash Into Jet Fuel

British Airways may soon be powering its planes from jet fuel made from trash. The plan is to take common household waste, like coffee cups and turn it into aviation fuel. The company in an announcement on Tuesday said their plant would take in more than 500,000 tons of non-recyclable household waste annually and cut greenhouse gas emissions by 70% for every ton of sustainable jet fuel produced.

If everything goes to plan, construction of the plant will begin in 2021 and will be based in northeast Lincolnshire.
