WestJet supporting development of Canadian-made sustainable aviation biofuel

WestJet (TSX: WJA) has teamed up with Alberta-based, Clean Energy Technology Centre (CETC) to accelerate the development of sustainable aviation biofuel in Western Canada.

The CETC is located in Drayton Valley, home also to the “Bio Mile,” an integrated bio-industrial park with close proximity to forestry and oil and gas industries whose infrastructure and human resources could eventually support the development of the alternative fuel source.

“Drayton Valley´s Clean Energy Technology Centre is purpose-built to be an ideal complement with WestJet in this important venture,” said Glenn McLean, Drayton Valley Mayor.

WestJet offers scheduled service to 100 destinations in North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe.
