Honeywell green yet fuel to power flights

UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, announced that Honeywell Green Jet Fuel? will be used for the world?s first comprehensive test program using a new biofeedstock specifically designed for biofuel production.
The test flights, to be done in Canada with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and Agrisoma Biosciences Inc., will also feature in-flight collection of emissions by a trailing aircraft, allowing for later evaluation of the Green Jet Fuel?s emissions performance.
The program will also test blends of Honeywell Green Jet Fuel at higher ratios than previous demonstration flights, which have been conducted using a 50/50 ratio of biofuel and jet fuel produced from petroleum.
?This is a unique program of test flights, given that we are using a new feedstock to produce the Honeywell Green Jet Fuel, and it will be used in higher ratio than before,? said Jim Rekoske, vice president and general manager of the Honeywell UOP?s Renewable Energy and Chemicals business unit. ?Additionally, the collection of in-flight emission will allow for further verification of the superior environmental performance of Honeywell Green Jet Fuel.?
The series of flights, expected to take place this month, will use Honeywell Green Jet Fuel produced from ResonanceTM Energy Feedstock, a new non-food, industrial oilseed crop produced by Ottawa-based Agrisoma. The feedstock is derived from Brassica carinata and is optimized for use as a biofuel feedstock. The crop is also uniquely suited for production in semi-arid areas that are unsuitable for food oilseed production, meaning it will not compete with food crops for land resources.
The Resonance crop, used to produce Honeywell Green Jet Fuel for the flights, was grown in Kincaid, Saskatchewan, in the summer of 2011.
