First-ever commercial flight on farnesene flies Orlando to Sao Paolo

In Florida, GOL’s flight 7725 that departed from Orlando, Florida on July 30 at 5:15 PM ET and traveled to Sao Paulo, Brazil, was the industry’s first commercial flight with farnesane. GOL committed to fly its Boeing 737 fleet with up to a 10 percent blend of the renewable farnesane fuel starting with this initial flight on July 30, 2014. Farnesane can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 80 percent compared to petroleum fuels. When blended with Jet A/A1 fuel at 10 percent, farnesane can also reduce particulate matter emissions, decreasing pollution near airports and major metropolitan areas.
