ARA Ships 100% Drop-In Biofuels for Navy Certification

Submitted by on February 15, 2016 – 10:21 amNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  In Florida, ARA completed the delivery of over 150,000 gallons of 100% drop-in jet and diesel fuel to fulfill its DLA/US Navy certification fuel contract, two months ahead of schedule. For the first time ever, renewable jet and diesel fuels that meet petroleum fuel specifications without blending will be certified for use as 100% drop-in fuels. The renewable jet and diesel fuels were produced with ARA’s and Chevron Lummus Global’s Biofuels ISOCONVERSION process which takes any kind of fat, oil, and grease, from yellow and brown grease to tallow to distiller corn oil to plant oil, and converts it into 100% drop in fuels.

With a CAPEX of $1 per annual production gallon and OPEX similar to petroleum refining costs, the BIC process efficiently converts renewable fats, oils, and greases from animals, plants, or algae into Renewable, Aromatic, Drop-in(Readi) fuels known as ReadiJet  (JP-5, JP-8 and Jet A) and ReadiDiesel (ASTM D 975 and F-76 Naval Distillate) and renewable chemicals. ReadiJet and ReadiDiesel fuels are ready to use, without blending with petroleum, in turbine and diesel engines designed to operate on petroleum-based fuels.

Biofuels ISOCONVERSION initially converts the fats, oils, and greases into an unsaturated “renewable barrel of crude” that contains the same molecular makeup and distribution of petroleum crude including paraffins, isoparaffins, cycloparaffins, and aromatic molecules as well as C3-C16 olefins and organic acids, except we have no sulfur.  READ MORE
