Honeywell Green Jet Fueltm..

UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE: HON) company, announced today that Honeywell Green Jet Fuel™, produced using UOP process technology, successfully powered an Interjet Airbus A320-214 from Mexico City to Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas. Process technology from Honeywell’s UOP was used to convert oil Mexicansourced jatropha, an inedible plant that can be grown in many climates and does not compete with the food chain, to Honeywell Green Jet Fuel. The Green Jet Fuel was blended with traditional petroleum-derived jet fuel to power one of the aircraft’s CFM56- 5B4/3 engines manufactured by CFM International. The demonstration flight, which took place April 1, is the culmination of work between Honeywell’s UOP, Interjet, Airbus, CFM International, the Government of the State of Chiapas and Auxiliary Services (ASA), an arm of Mexico’s Ministry of Communications and Transport. “ASA’s leadership and commitment to identifying local and sustainable sources of aviation biofuel for Mexico have been instrumental in making this flight a reality,” said Jim Rekoske, vice president and general manager of Renewable Energy and Chemicals for Honeywell’s UOP. “ASA, Interjet, Airbus, CFM and UOP share a vision that Green Jet Fuel can help address our transportation needs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping the Mexican rural economy.” The Green Jet Fuel process technology was originally developed in 2007 under a contract from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to produce renewable military jet fuel for the U.S. military. The process is based on hydroprocessing technology commonly used in today’s refineries to UOP Technology Powers KLM Biofuels Flight produce transportation fuels. In this process, hydrogen is added to remove oxygen from natural oils produced from sustainable feedstocks, including camelina, jatropha and algae.
