[biofuelwatch] Aviation biofuel approved in China

China has granted a license for Sinopec's aviation biofuel. It is made of palm oil and recycled cooking oil. 
Collecting used cooking oil is expensive and Sinopec is looking for other raw materials.
Annually, China's people consume 28 million tones of cooking oil, and China's airlines burn 20 million tonnes of aviation fuel.

Sinopec can produce aviation biofuel from used cooking oil palm, rapeseed and soybean oil. Sinopec claims greenhouse gas emissions are lower than conventional jet fuel.

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.
