Air Transport Action Group defends jatropha, sustainable biofuels process

In Switzerland, the Air Transport Action Group is fighting back against an article in the Ecologist that claimed Germany, Lufthansa and the global airlines industry as a whole are supporting 'bad' biofuels by working to make jatropha a major feedstock for bio-based jetfuels.
The ATAG says that by working with the Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels from the start and focusing on finding crops for fuel that can and will be grown responsibly since the industry does not have the luxury of reducing its GHG emissions through solar, wind and other renewable energies.
