I am guilty of having an extensive ecological footprint with all of the traveling I do, but with the recent success of a jatropha biofuel-based Airbus, I have high hopes that I'll soon be flying greener.

Brazil's TAM Airlines sent one of its A320 airplanes on this maiden voyage that lasted 45 minutes and carried 20 employees. Powered by an increasingly more sustainable mixture with 50% local bio-kerosene, the jatropha biofuel-based Airbus jet has just made history.
