Lake Erie Biofuels, LLC has made history by co-sponsoring “Green Flight International,” the first ever biodiesel transcontinental jet flight.

“This transcontinental flight was distinctive in that 1,776 miles of the 2,486 total miles flown were powered on 100% biodiesel,” says Douglas Rodante, Green Flight International president and CEO. Only 710 miles of the flight were powered by a mixture of 50% biodiesel and 50% standard jet fuel. The 50/50 fuel mix was used to compare performance data and demonstrate the capability of blending biodiesel with existing jet fuel supplies.
