Jet photo from Shutterstock Thanks to scientists harnessing the power of chemistry, you may one day soon fly in a plane fueled by plants. An article published in the journal Nature last week describes a new technique developed by researchers at UC Berkeley that can create biofuels powerful enough to be used as jet fuel. Created using bacterial fermentation and chemical catalysis , the amped up biofuel is ten times more powerful, and it can serve as a viable power source for large industrial vehicles and airplanes.
