Green Flight – level 1

02-12-2020 15:00

Lufthansa is a German airline. It is one of the largest airlines in the world. Lufthansa gives good news last week. The company wants to make the first CO2 neutral flight. A carbon neutral flight means that the flight has no CO2 impact on the natural world.

One way is to use biofuel. Biofuel comes from plants or animal waste. A second way is to plant trees in Africa. It means that the flight is not CO2 neutral. But people plant trees to help the natural world.

Some companies have big problems now. The reason is the coronavirus. Some companies need less oil. It means that some refineries will close. It is possible that some companies will use biofuel instead of normal oil. But the problem with biofuel is that it costs three to six times more than normal oil.

Difficult words: CO2 (a gas that cars and factories produce and it is bad for the natural world), impact (a big change), animal waste (what people get from animals after the animals eat something), refinery (a factory where people make natural oil cleaner).
