JetBlue signed an agreement to buy 33 million gallons of blended biofuel each year for the next 10 years. The deal is an agreement with bioenergy company SG Preston.

JetBlue said the decision is a big step forward in the history of the aviation industry.

“The future of aviation relies in part on renewable energy sources. We’re taking a leadership role in technology and other advancements including renewable jet fuels,” said Robin Hayes, CEO, in a statement.

The company said it is experimenting with several types of biofuels, and none of them compete with food production. Some biofuels, for example, are derived from corn. The blend JetBlue will use is a mix of 30 percent renewable fuel and 70 percent traditional jet fuel.

The airline also said it will use the blended biofuel at New York-area airports. The deal will mean the airline will rely on the blended biofuel for about 20 percent of its annual fuel consumption at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, which services more JetBlue flights than any other airport.
