Caption :
Produced using non-food crops, biofuels improve aviation's carbon footprint. Safran Aircraft Engines is participating in their certification by testing them on its engines.

In 2013, an Airbus A321 flying from Toulouse performed a routine landing at the Paris Air Show (see box). The novelty was that one of its CFM561 engines was powered by kerosene containing 10% farnesane. This substance is derived from the transformation of sugar cane into basic molecules (farnesene) thanks to microorganisms acting during fermentation. Once hydrogenated, the farnesene molecule becomes farnesane and may then be directly incorporated into an aviation fuel such as kerosene.
