A team from NASA's Langley Research Center traveled this month from Virginia to California to meet with other researchers from NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center to experiment with a new biofuel for jets. Vegetarians, however, might not be too thrilled with the new eco-friendly fuel, which is made from an animal byproduct.

"It's made out of chicken fat, actually," said Langley's Bruce Anderson. "The Air Force brought many thousands of gallons of this to burn in some of their jets and provided about 8,000 gallons to NASA for this experiment." The research team intends to test and compare a mixture of 50 percent chicken-fat biofuel and 50 percent traditional jet fuel, pure bio fuel, and pure jet fuel.

The entire investigation will include researches from Langley, Dryden, NASA's Glenn Research Center in Ohio, investigators and consultants from private industry, other federal organizations and academia--a total of 17 organizations will participate. Glenn researchers are providing the instruments for measuring particulate and gaseous emissions in the experiment.

"NASA Dryden is excited to continue contributing to the study of alternatives fuels for aviation use," claimed NASA's DC-8 flying laboratory project manager, Frank Cutler. "These tests will assess exhaust emissions generated by modern turbine aircraft engines using man-made fuels." And the experimentation has come at an appropriate time. The U.S. military has a goal set for flying its aircraft using 50 percent biofuel and the Air Force is working on certifying its fleet for utilizing a 50-percent blend of the chicken-fat biofuel blend.

"The use of alternative fuels, including biofuels, in aircraft is a key element for sustainability reducing the impact of aviation on the environment and for reducing the dependency on foreign petroleum," said the manager of NASA's Subsonic Fixed Wing Project, Ruben Del Rosario.

Anyone else find it ironic that birds not commonly known for their flying abilities will be used to fly our nation's aircrafts?

    I don't drop a comment, but after browsing through a few of the comments on this page "NASA Tests New Biofuel Made With Chicken Fat". I do have a few questions for you if you don't mind.
    Could it be just me or does it appear like some of the comments appear as if they are written by brain dead people?

  10. Nem engedem, ha elfelejtem a Miramar megnevezésének magyarázatát, bár fogadhatnék,replika órák hogy az olvasók nagy többsége már ismeri ezt. A Miramar a neve a kaliforniai San Diego-i légierő támaszpontjának, ahol a TOPGUN pilótákat kiképezték, bár ez a bázis valójában Nevada-ba költözött. Az IWC fenntartja a Top Gun film logójának jogait, és egyesek üdvözlésére és mások villámcsapására ugyanúgy igaz,rolex replika mint a korábbi Top Gun órák esetében. Szerencsére nem színesben készült, mint a néhány évvel ezelőtti modellek. Ez bosszant néhány embert, de elég könnyen elhagyható,replika óra ha egyébként kedveli az órát.
