  7. 7. What’s up with all thesynthetic fuelflight tests?
  8. 8. DoD intends to catalyze commercial industry toproduce clean fuels for the military from securedomestic resources using environmentallysensitive process as a bridge to the future - Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007
  9. 9. By 2016, 50% of all fuel for thecontinental U.S. fleet will bepurchased domestically fromalternate sources - Air Force Policy Document 90-17
  10. 10. What is synthetic jetfuel…and how is it made?
  11. 11. Same components aspetroleum jet fuel… Petro Synthetics ”The good, the bad, and the ugly!”…except for the “bad” and the “ugly”
  12. 12. Two ways tosyntheticparaffinicjet fuel
  13. 13. 1. Low Temperature Fischer-Tropsch Carbon Feedstock: Coal (~80% C) Woody biomass (~50% C) 2 C + ½ O2 + H 2 O à Gasification: CO + 2 H2 + CO2 Carbon to syngas CO + 2 H2 + CO2 à Fischer-Tropsch: –[CH2]n– + H2O + CO2 Syngas to n-paraffins –[CH2]n– + H2 à Hydrocracking: +–[CH(CH2)]n-m– n-paraffins to shorter + –[CH2]m– n- and iso-paraffins Synthetic Jet Fuel to Distillation and Shipping
  14. 14. 2. Hydroprocessing of Fats and Oils Liquid Biomass Feed: Fats/Oils/Greases Algae oils Hydrodeoxygenation: C17H33COOH + 4 H2 à Fatty acid/glycerides C18H38 + H2O to n-paraffins Hydrocracking: C18H38 + H2 à n-paraffins to shorter n-C9H20 + i-C9H20 n- and iso-paraffins Synthetic Jet Fuel to Distillation and Shipping
