Your household waste can fuel your next overseas flight

British Airways and Velocys, which makes renewable fuels, are partnering to make jet fuel from household waste.
The first conversion plant will produce enough fuel to power all the airline’s Dreamliner flights from London to San Jose, California, and New Orleans. The fuel is expected to be clean enough to save about 60,000 tons of carbon-dioxide emissions annually, roughly a 60 percent reduction in what flights now produce.
