German airline Lufthansa wrapped up a six-month biofuel test, but will not take testing further unless the fuel was more widely produced. The pilot project “has had a positive result from which we want to continue to work,” the airline's official in charge of the project, Joachim Buse, said. But he indicated that the airline would not introduce the use of the biofuel. “The objective is to arrive at a price (for fuel) on the basis of which we can work,” he said in a telephone conference.
