- FAA bans DuPont fuel additive from use in 737 Max
Citing the risk of dual-engine power loss, the US Federal Aviation Administration has prohibited airlines from adding a DuPont-made biocide to the fuel of Boeing 737 Max.
An airworthiness directive effective 15 July requires 737 Max operators to remove fuel treated with the biocide from Max tanks and engines prior to first flight.
The order, which applies to DuPont's "Kathon FP 1.5 biocide", affects 75 737 Max of US registry, nearly the entire delivered US Max fleet.
