Analysis Shows Camelina-Based Jet Fuel Cuts Emissions

Submitted by on December 20, 2010 – 11:57 amNo Comment

(Western Farmer-Stockman)  A life cycle analysis of the carbon footprint of camelina-based biojet fuel concludes that the renewable fuel reduces CO2 emissions by 75% compared with conventional petroleum-based jet fuel.

A pee-reviewed paper published in Environmental Progress & Sustainable Energy, shows that green diesel made through the same process also cuts CO2 emissions by 80%.

This analysis “proves what we’ve known for a long time – that camelina is an ideal feedstock for renewable jet fuel,” says Scott Johnson, president of Sustainable Oils, a Seattle-based vendor of camelina.

The research, in collaboration with UOP, a Honeywell firm, was conducted at Michigan Tech University, a leading research center. It was based on camelina grown in Montana and processed into biojet fuel using UOP hydroprocessing technology.

…Camelina grows in rotation with wheat and/or on marginal land, so it does not compete for agricultural land. Camelina meal has been approved for use as a livestock-poultry feed, so growing camelina actually contributes to overall food supply, he believes.   READ MORE
