Applied Research Associates close to making CHCJ-5 price competitive with JP-5

November 24, 2016 |

In New Mexico, Applied Research Associates has been working with the Navy to develop and trial renewable jet fuel that can fly without blending into fossil fuel-based JP-5. The test flight of a EA-18 Growler in September on 100% CHCJ-5 performed just as with JP-5, with 80% fewer greenhouse gas emissions. ARA says it believes it can get the costs down to be competitive with petroleum-based fuels thanks to the use of waste feedstocks such as used cooking oil and yellow grease.
