Good news for those concerned about the cost/availability of conventional fuels.

Furthermore, it needs that the waste cooking oil is re cycled as well.

Sounds interesting. It raises some serious logistical issues:
1. From where are they going to acquire the amount of used cooking oil for a daily usage? it's a huge amount of fuel...
2. how are they going to transport it to the airport?
3. Where will they stock it in the airport, and how will they fuel the aircraft?
