Green Flight – level 2
Lufthansa is a German company and it is one of the world´s largest airlines. Last week, Lufthansa announced that it would make the first CO2 neutral flight.
Lufthansa will use biofuel, which is a fuel that is made from plants or animal waste. The problem is that biofuel is three to six times more expensive that conventional fuel so it is not very likely that airlines will use it very much in the near future.
The coronavirus has caused companies to need less oil and it is possible that some refineries will have to close. This could force some companies to start using biofuel and become greener which means that they would use technologies that are less harmful to the environment.
Difficult words: CO2 neutral (when something does not produce the carbon dioxide gas which is bad for the environment), conventional (something that people consider ordinary and normal), refinery (a factory that makes oil cleaner)
