United Airlines To Use More Sustainable Jet Fuel

United Airlines has announced that it will partner with international firms to finance the use of sustainable fuel this year.
The airline is partnering with companies such as Nike and Siemens in an “Eco-Skies Alliance”.
The alliance will finance the use of 3.4 million gallons of low carbon sustainable aviation fuel made from trash.
The amount is tiny in comparison to the 4.3 billion gallons of jet fuel that the company consumed in 2019.
However, the new alliance will triple the roughly 1 million gallons of sustainable fuel United has used each year since 2016.
United has said that it wants to cut net emissions by 100% by 2050, and has been investing in “carbon capture technology”.
