United Airlines Begins Regular Commercial Flights Using Renewable Jet Fuel Made From Honeywell UOP Technology

DES PLAINES, Ill.March 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) UOP announced that starting today United Airlines will use Honeywell Green Jet Fuel™ to power 12,500 flights from Los Angeles to San Francisco as part of its efforts to reduce carbon emissions and support energy diversification.

Fuel for the flights was produced by AltAir Paramount LLC using Honeywell UOP’s proprietary renewable jet fuel process technology, which converts non-edible animal fats and oils into renewable fuels. The process is fully compatible with existing equipment commonly used in today’s refineries, making it easier for refiners to use existing infrastructure to produce renewable fuels.
