Accelerate the development of sustainable aviation biofuel production in Thailand
To reach sustained production of biofuels for aviation in Thailand, THAI will bring together organizations and businesses such as petroleum producers, research firms, educational institutions, aircraft and engine manufacturers, and different government bodies affiliated with the aviation industry to take part in the development. This project called "Sustainable Biofuels Development for Aviation Industry" aims to create both demand and supply, through clear national policies on biofuels, which can help to generate revenue in the agricultural sector. In order to boost awareness and support use of aviation biofuels in Thailand, THAI is operating its THAI First Flight with Biofuels TG8421 on 21 December 2011. This inaugural biofuels flight departs from Bangkok‚Äôs Suvarnabhumi Airport at 14.00 hours on Boeing 777-200 aircraft, carrying members of the press and representatives from organizations and government functions that support the biofuels project, such as PTT Public Company Limited, Aeronautical Radio of Thailand Limited, Airports of Thailand Public Company Limited, Rolls Royce, and Boeing.
