By collecting and analyzing the contrails created by planes running on a biofuel mix, a NASA study has found that biofuels can cut Particle Emissions by as much as 70 percent. The benefits come not just from reducing carbon emitted directly into the atmosphere but by also cutting down the chance of contrails forming, which can have an even bigger impact on the Earth's atmosphere.
