PNNL pave the way for ethanol-derived jet fuel

PNNL developed an innovative thermo-catalytic process to convert ethanol in alcohol-to-jet synthetic paraffinic kerosene (ATJ-SPK) paving the way for an increase in sustainable aviation fuels. This ground-breaking procedure was possible after the revision of ASTM D7566 Annex A5, allowing ethanol as approved feedstock for the production of ATJ-SPK. The new process can use ethanol from any sources, including several different low-cost supplies. Currently, PNNL is collaborating with LanzaTech to scale up the production process.
