ABU DHABI / WAM
Etihad Airways and Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre (Tadweer) are set to collaborate on a research pro-ject to explore how municipal waste can be converted into jet fuel. The project aims to use final jet fuel on Etihad Airways’ flights. Etihad and Tadweer signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Etihad’s premises.
Mohammad Al Bulooki, Chief Operating Officer at Etihad Aviation Group, said, “Waste-to-biofuel is a cutting-edge technology — one that Etihad Airways believes will have a profoundly positive impact on the aviation industry, while also providing waste management solutions and a cleaner environment.”
