Evaluations of various alternative jet fuel blends have been evaluated at Honeywell Aerospace sites in Phoenix, Arizona. Evaluations included component, combustor rig, and engine testing on Honeywell military engines and Auxiliary Power Units APUs. This report summarizes and references reports prepared for a Defense Logistics Agency DLA Energy evaluation, Green Diesel GD blend evaluation, and a fully synthetic fuel atomizer spray evaluation in conjunction with the US Navy. The DLA Energy tests were evaluating fuels relative to the National Jet Fuel Combustion Program NJFCP. The Green Diesel evaluations were performed with both high freeze point and low freeze point Green Diesel fuels blended with Jet A and JP-8 petroleum derived fuels. The fully synthetic fuel used for the atomizer spray evaluation was 100 percent Catalytic Hydrothermolysis Jet made to JP-5 specifications CHCJ-5.
