ASTM Developing Specification for Aviation Fuel Containing Synthesized Hydrocarbons

ASTM subcommittee D02.J0.06 has begun work on new a specification—ASTM 21761—covering the manufacture of aviation turbine fuel and synthetic blending components. (Earlier post.)

Fuel manufactured to this standard will meet the requirements of ASTM International Standard D1655-xx (the standard covering Jet A and Jet A-1 for civil use) and can be recertified to D1655-xx at any point in the distribution chain.

The new specification defines specific types of aviation turbine fuel that may contain synthesized hydrocarbons for civil use in the operation and certification of aircraft and describes fuels found satisfactory for the operation of aircraft and engines. The specification is intended to be used as a standard in describing the quality of aviation turbine fuels and synthetic blending components at the place of manufacture but can be used to describe the quality of aviation turbine fuels for contractual transfer at all points in the distribution chain from the refinery to the aircraft.

The specification is not intended to be comprehensive in including all fuels satisfactory for aviation turbine engines. Certain equipment or conditions of use may permit a wider, or require a narrower, range of characteristics than is shown by this specification.

Just in time for fuel produced at nuclear reactors.

Oh wait! This is for bio-fuels when there is not enough land to raise crops to feed the people in many countries. ..HG..
