Canadian bio fuel maker and airline sign farm-to-flight deal
By Agrisoma Biosciences Inc.
Farmers in Australia will soon be growing a Canadian oilseed used to make bio jet fuel thanks to a new "farm-to-flight" deal between Quebec-based Agrisoma Biosciences Inc., and Qantas Airlines.
The partnership is the first of its kind in Australia and will see Agrisoma work with Australian farmers to grow the Carinata seed, a non-food, industrial type of mustard seed that produces high-quality oil ideal for renewable aviation jet fuel and renewable diesel fuel.
In 2018, Qantas will operate the world's first bio-fuel flight between the U.S. and Australia. For the full story, click here.
