According to the Air Transit Association, a number of US carriers, led by United and American Airlines, have signed a letter of intent in a landmark biofuel deal with Solena Fuels.
The agreement would make 16 million gallons of biofuel available each year to airlines flying out of Bay Area airports.
The jet fuel will be developed entirely from recycled waste and could be used at airports in Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose as early as 2015.
Other US airlines signing on to the deal include Alaska Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines. International carriers Air Canada and Lufthansa have also signed on.
