In June 2015, United Airlines announced a partnership with biofuel company Fulcrum BioEnergy, to invest in future commercial scale aviation biofuel plants. The company’s innovative technology converts municipal solid waste (household trash) into low-cost, sustainable aviation biofuel. This investment adds to their agreement to purchase up to 15 million gallons of sustainable aviation biofuel from AltAir, over a three-year period. Photo courtesy of United Airlines.
EERE Success Story—Aviation Biofuel Milestone Reached: 5 Gallons of Jet Fuel Produced from Industrial Waste Gasses

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and industry partner Lanzatech recently achieved a significant milestone in the production of renewable jet fuel. Funded by the Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO), the project succeeded in producing five gallons of synthetic paraffinic kerosene from carbon-rich industrial waste gases (e.g., carbon monoxide).

EERE Success Story—FCA and Partners Achieve 25% Fuel Economy Improvement in Light-Duty Advanced Technology Powertrain

Internal combustion engines have the potential to become substantially more efficient, with laboratory tests indicating that new technologies could increase passenger vehicle fuel economy by more than 50%. FCA and its partners recently took major steps toward fulfilling this potential through a project supported by EERE’s Vehicle Technologies Office. This team improved the fuel economy of a vehicle similar to Chrysler’s Town and Country minivan by more than 25%, while also meeting the Environmental Protection Agency’s most stringent emissions standards.
