Prometheus Fuels licenses ORNL’s ethanol-to-jet conversion process technology

September 15, 2020 |

In California, Prometheus Fuels has licensed an ethanol-to-jet-fuel conversion process developed by researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The ORNL technology will enable cost-competitive production of jet fuel and co-production of butadiene for use in renewable polymer synthesis.

The mission of Prometheus Fuels, a startup based in Santa Cruz, California, is to remove carbon dioxide from the air and turn it into net-zero carbon gasoline and jet fuel.

The current state-of-the-art process for converting biomass-derived ethanol into aviation fuels is a costly endeavor, both in terms of energy use and capital cost.
