Syntroleum to Deliver Renewable Alternative Jet Fuel to DoD

9 July 2007

Syntroleum Corporation will provide synthetic jet fuel made from renewable feedstock to the US Department of Defense (DOD) for evaluation as part of a larger program aimed at the domestic manufacture and supply of synthetic aviation fuels.

Under terms of the contract, Syntroleum will provide 500 gallons of renewable synthetic jet fuel produced entirely from fats supplied by Tyson Foods, Inc., using the company’s recently announced Biofining technology. (Earlier post.)

The fuel will be used for research development and performance testing in military turbine applications as part of the DOD’s Assured Fuels Program, aimed at evaluating the possibility of utilizing renewable alternative jet fuel made from bio feedstocks.

The US Air Force is looking to source 50% of its fuel needs from domestic alternative sources by 2016, and plans to certify its entire fleet of aircraft for alternative fuel use by 2010.
