Honeywell, AliphaJet MOU for aviation biofuels wins nod from President Carter

November 30, 2011 |

In California, AliphaJet announced an MOU with Honeywell under which Honeywell is expected to  invest engineering services and equipment to accelerate the deployment of AliphaJet’s process.  AliphaJet will use Honeywell Controls, Instrumentation and Advanced Solutions,  including its Experion®Process Knowledge System and UniSim process simulators and field instrumentation.

AliphaJet has developed and demonstrated a highly cost-effective catalytic method for making jet biofuel from renewable products such as plant and animal triglycerides and/or fatty acids.

At a dinner in San Francisco where the agreement was announced, former President Jimmy Carter said, “I am optimistic about the future of renewable fuels now that breakthrough technologies available from Honeywell and AliphaJet promise to unlock the use of  renewable drop-in fuels. Efforts like these fulfill the energy policies we launched in the 1970s”.
