AliphaJet Develops Process For Making Renewable Jet Biofuel


AliphaJet Inc. says it has developed and demonstrated a catalytic method for making jet biofuel from renewable products such as plant and animal triglycerides and/or fatty acids.

The BoxCar catalytic de-oxygenation process significantly reduces capital and operating costs because it does not require hydrogen to remove the oxygen from the feedstocks, the company says. Fuel samples were tested at Southwest Research Institute and met or exceeded D-1655 requirements, including net heat of combustion, freezing point, smoke point and sulfur levels.

AliphaJet is a collaborative venture between SynGest Inc. and Unitel Technologies Inc.
