While the Boeing 747-8 will use a fuel mixing 15% of camelina and 85% of kerosene, the Green Jet Fuel is composed of 50% of camelina and 50% of kerosene.

This flight follows the initial approval by ASTM International for the use of biofuels based on natural oils, such as Green Jet Fuel Honeywell, for aviaiton and commercial flights. This biofuel is adapted to the technical requirements of the flights without any necessary modification of the aircraft or engine.

The business jet should take off from Morristown Municipal Airport located in Morristown, New Jersey at 9pm tonight, and will arrive at the airport of Paris-LeBourget about seven hours later, where the company will participate in the Paris Air Show.
