$600 million investment is a big step towards more sustainable airlines.

In an effort to be more eco-friendly, which is an extremely difficult task for an airline, British Airways (BA) has partnered with Solena Fuels to build a factory that will convert trash into biofuel. Known as the London Green Sky Project, the facility will be located outside London on a site that used to be a large oil refinery, which symbolizes the need for more sustainable fuel sources perfectly. Green Sky will use the existing waste collection system to pick up household trash and take advantage of the electricity infrastructure that supplied the refinery in the past. An additional $600 million was invested to develop the technology that will be used in the biofuel facility, and hopefully pay for itself in the long run.
