Directory:Biomass / Directory:Biofuels > Directory:Biofuels:Research and Development > Plant-based fuel is cheap, easy, and ready to power your jet - Engineers at University of Wisconsin-Madison have found a way to convert 95% of the energy of cellulosic biomass into jet fuel using stable, inexpensive catalysts, basic equipment and minimal processing. The end hydrocarbon product is so similar to jet fuel that it is ready for application by present internal engine designs. (GizMag March 11, 2010)

Directory:Alternative Fuels > Directory:Biofuels > Directory:Algae > From Hype to Reality – Not All Algae Are Created Equally - Algae biofuels are often considered one of those technologies --- like hydrogen fuel cells --- that are always "ten years away." Well, one company, Solazyme, says it might have just cracked the code and could be supplying lots of algae jet fuel and diesel in the coming years. (Green Tech Media Apr. 1, 2010)


Directory:Alternative Fuels > Directory:Biojet Fuel / Directory:Biomass / Directory:Waste to Energy > Airline forms partnership to build first biojet fuel plant in Europe - A leading UK airline has committed to partner with a US based clean energy company to establish a biofuel plant in East London. The plant will make fuel from waste from the city of London destined for landfill sites. (NaturalNews April 11, 2010)

Directory:Alternative Fuels > Bio jet fuel breakthrough? - Diversified Energy has licensed a new biofuel technology from North Carolina State University, that can make high performance fuels from any renewable lipid-based oil compound, such as soybean, canola, animal fats or algae. Centia™, delivers a more advanced and complex hydrocarbon fuel, suitable for jet fuel, or as a biodiesel additive for cold-weather operations. (Inside Greentech Feb. 13, 2007)

Directory:Fuel Efficiency Alternative Fuels > Directory:Butanol / Directory:Flight > Butanol Jet Fuel From CO2 - Ocean Ethanol lab experiments confirm electrochemical production of butanol from CO2, water and electricity, generating butanol, water and oxygen. Estimated production cost is $.80 per gallon - based on current electrical rates, free water and free CO2. Butanol was identified by Virgin Airlines as the jet fuel of the future. (Ocean Ethanol Feb. 21, 2007)

Chevron and NREL to Research Fuel from Algae - Chevron and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory have agreed to study technology to produce liquid transportation fuels using algae. Although NREL’s past research on algal biofuels focused on biodiesel, the lab has been interested in kerosene-like fuel and military jet fuels. (Green Car Congress Oct. 31, 2007)

Airlines push for homegrown jet fuel - The airline industry is aggressively pushing for homegrown alternatives to petroleum-based jet fuel. A coalition that includes the Federal Aviation Administration, airline, manufacturing and airport associations wants standards for a 50 percent synthetic jet fuel approved by the end of 2008.
