SYNFUELS EEEJet TECHNOLOGYToday, jet fuel from renewable resources costs more than jet fuel made from petroleum and other fossil fuels, but that extra cost can be justified by the additional value of reduced emissions and zero carbon foot print. Synfuels jet fuel (EEEjet) has better properties and better value than other products that claim to be synthetic jet fuels. Synfuels EEEjet derived from natural gas is identical to its renewable biojet product, except it is formulated from non-renewable, abundant natural gas.
The initial product composition of Fischer Tropsch (FT) is highly dependent on pressure, temperature, feed gas composition, catalyst type, catalyst composition and reactor design. Post treatment requires catalytic dewaxing, hydrotreating, hydrocracking and hydroisomerization. Maximum selectivity results from lower temperature and slower reactions, more expensive catalyst and carefully controlled H2/CO ratio. Wide variability can be expected in product quality. Much of the product (about 50%) is wax which must be cracked, isomerized and reacted to form liquid fuel products.
FT jet fuel consists of straight chain alkanes. This material cannot meet jet fuel specifications including physical density, energy density and freeze point. It can be mixed with traditional jet fuel to form a blend that has been qualified as jet fuel, but errors can always occur in blending.
Synfuels ethylene derived jet fuel has been proven by both commercial and US Military labs to meet or exceed all jet fuel specifications. Synfuels ethylene derived jet fuel can be made from 100% renewable feedstocks such as plant derived ethanol or from natural gas using the Synfuels Gas to Ethylene (GTE) process. Synfuels ethylene derived jet fuel has a very low freeze point naturally making it an excellent choice for high altitude or arctic flight. Its high temperature stability was 60C over typical petroleum derived jet fuel. Although not yet fully qualified, it is projected to be a 100% jet fuel replacement in either its renewable or single use form.
