jets after two of the
planes crashed and killed
more than 340 people
— Boeing announced it
would offer airlines and operators the option of powering their
new 737 Max jets with biofuel for the ;ights home.
The program was designed to further spur the use of sustainable aviation fuels — which cut emissions up to 80 percent —
and support the industry’s drive to protect the environment.
The biofuel option would have been available for customers
accepting new airplanes at Boeing’s delivery centers in Seattle and

option will make it easier for them and others to demonstrate
our industry’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions.”
Alaska Airlines, the ;rst participant in the program, signed
on to use a blend of biofuel made by World Energy and
