Benefits of producing Next Generation Renewable Drop-in Fuels using our Biofuel ISOCONVERSION Process


Fuel Benefits

  • Meets ASTM and MIL specs for petroleum fuels without blending with petroleum
  • Provides energy equivalent to or better than petroleum fuels - both weight and volume basis
    • 1.5% less specific fuel consumption compared to Jet A-1 during  engine test
  • Exhibits excellent combustion quality
    • No sulfur, high hydrogen, clean-burning
    • Greater than 50% reduction in airborne particles, including black carbon, compared to Jet A-1
  • Exhibits excellent low-temperature properties
    • Viscosity, freeze point, pour point, cloud point
  • Exhibits excellent storage and thermal stability

Process Benefits

  • Requires only filtered oil
    • Does not require degumming, bleaching or deodorizing of feed stocks
    • Can save $0.15 - $1.00 per gallon of feed stock compared to competing technologies which require extensive preprocessing
  • Converts any renewable oil, lipid,triglyceride, or fatty acid feed stock
  • Over 80% reduction in life cycle green house gases compared to petroleum fuels
  • Small footprint results in low CAPEX - $1 per annual production gallon
  • Traditional refining industry unit operations with comparable operating costs Eliminates hydrocracking and hydroisomerization operations
    • Minimizes hydrogen, water, chemical, catalyst, and energy consumption
  • Produces high yields of pure hydrocarbon fuels, with high-density aromatic and cycloparaffin compounds
