Boeing Tests New Tech with ecoDemonstrator 787

Last week Boeing reported more promising results from the recently completed latest phase of its ecoDemonstrator program. It was performed over about a week of flying twice a day from a former U.S. Air Force base in Glasgow, Montana, and during individual positioning flights between Seattle’s Boeing Field and the company’s Dreamliner assembly plant in Charleston, South Carolina.

The tests, flown with up to a 50-50 blend of jet-A and sustainable alternative fuel (SAF) derived from agricultural waste from California,
centered on noise mitigation, flight routing optimization, and cabin disinfecting technology.
