Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 passes 100% sustainable fuel test

Evidence continues to mount that 100% sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) can be successfully used in aircraft engines after a successful test flight by Rolls-Royce, Boeing and World Energy.

The test flight in the US of almost four hours used the Rolls-Royce  Boeing 747 Flying Testbed aircraft with a Trent 1000 engine running 100 percent SAF and three RB211 powerplants using regular fuel.

Rolls said initial indications were that there were no engineering issues “providing further proof of the fuel’s suitability for commercial use”.
