Planes could be powered by jet fuel made from household rubbish from 2024 under plans by Shell, British Airways and Velocys to build Europe's first large-scale plant to produce jet fuel from domestic and commercial waste.Shell, BA and Velocys, which have applied for planning permission for the plant from local authorities in North East Lincolnshire, are targeting domestic or commercial black bag waste that would otherwise end up in landfills or incinerators.The three companies have invested a combined 7.3 million pounds ($8.8 million) in the project so far.British Airways and Shell will also purchase the biofuel produced, which emits around 70 percent less greenhouse gases compared with the fossil fuel equivalent, Velocys said.
