Honeywell’s UOP Working With Aviation and Refining Leaders in China to Create Sustainable Aviation Biofuels Industry

July 4, 2010

Aviation biofuel made by Honeywell’s UOP has been used for biofuel demonstration flights on Boeing commercial aircraft with Air New Zealand, Continental Airlines, Japan Airlines and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as well as on military demonstration flights with U.S. Air Force and Navy aircraft.

The UOP process produces Green Jet Fuel which requires no changes to the aircraft engine technology when used at a 50 percent blend with petroleum-based jet fuel and meets or exceeds all specifications for flight. Green Jet Fuel made from second-generation, non-food sources such as camelina and jatropha plants offers up to an 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions over petroleum-based fuels.

With the acceptance of biofuels by major airlines and Jatropha being the key feedstock candidate, JatrophaWorld 2010 in Rotterdam on 06-07 October has enlisted KLM’s senior representative, Mr. Dirk Kronemeijer, Managing Director SkyNRG to share on the topic “Perspective of an Airline on Bio-Jet Fuel”.

KLM is one of the many distinguished companies speaking at JatrophaWorld 2010, for more information on the conference agenda, please click here.
