NEXT year Qantas will operate the world’s first bio-fuel flight between the US and Australia.

In collaboration with World Fuel Services and Altair Fuels, the Los Angeles to Melbourne Dreamliner flight will take to the air early next year, powered by Brassica Carinata, a non-food, industrial type of mustard seed.

Qantas Int’l ceo, Alison Webster said the flight would mark the first step in developing an aviation biofuel supply in Australia.

“Our work with Agrisoma will enable Australian farmers to start growing today for the country’s biofuel needs of the future.”
