Alliance BioEnergy develops pathway to JP-8 advanced cellulosic aviation biofuel

July 24, 2016 |

In Florida, Alliance BioEnergy Plus has developed a pathway to produce JP-8, an advanced military grade aviation biofuel, at the suggestion of government officials at the DOE and NREL.  The Company is working closely with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and has submitted an application under the Department of Energy’s (DOE) funding request to build a commercial scale plant producing aviation biofuel from yard waste, pine chips and corn stover.

Alliance BioEnergy is currently in discussions with several ethanol producers relating to its bolt-on CTS unit capable of processing DDG and other biomass while it continues meeting with potential territory and plant sub-licensees from around the world.  The CTS process is proving to be extremely versatile and capable of producing several different products from a variety of biomass feedstocks, at the same time.

Much like the commercial aviation fuel, Jet A-1 except with the addition of corrosion inhibitors and anti-icing additives in order to meet the stringent U.S. and British defense standards.

Cellulosic biofuels using the CTS process can produce a jet fuel that is nearly 90% cleaner than conventional jet fuels and completely renewable.  The CTS process is capable of processing a wide variety of biomass including agricultural waste, residential and commercial yard waste as well as specialty crops into aviation biofuels at strategically placed locations near high traffic airports and military bases in order to reduce the transport and storage costs usually associated with aviation fuels being refined in faraway ports and trucked or railed all across the country.
