5th Bio-based jet fuel approved

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)  recently approved a new, alternative bio-based jet fuel that meets ASTM International standards. Known as Alcohol to Jet Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosene (ATJ-SPK), the new aviation fuel is created from isobutanol derived from feed stocks such as sugar and corn. This latest approval brings the number of approved aviation biofuels to five, including ATJ-SPK, Synthesized Iso-parafins (SIP), Hydro-processed Esters and Fatty Acids Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosene (HEFA-SPK), Fischer-Tropsch Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosene (FT-SPK) and Fischer-Tropsch Synthetic Kerosene with Aromatics.
