Until a viable biofuel option really takes off it’s kind of difficult to bring a little green to air travel. However, Brazilian airline Gol is not letting this stop them. Even though their planes run on regular old jet fuel, they are looking to eliminate the waste from their, uh, waste.
The airline has set up special facilities at many of their bases, and they have a pretty good rate of successfully cleaning things up in an earth friendly way. Their maintenance centers follow some pretty strict environmental standards to ensure that all oil and other chemical garbage is treated prior to being sent elsewhere. When it comes to the inside of the planes, Gol is using some kind of special industrial towels to get things spiffy for passengers. They even wash the towels in some sort of fancy way to cut down on waste.
