In September 1986, the Fuels Branch of the Aero Propulsion Laboratory of WPAFB, OH, began an investigation of the potential of the production of jet fuel from the liquid by-products streams produced by the gasification of lignite at the Great Plains Gasification Plant GPGP in Beulah, North Dakota. Funding was provided to the Department of Energy, Pittsburgh Energy Technology Center, to administer the experimental portion of this effort. This report details the program with the National Institute for Petroleum and Energy Research of the IIT Research Institute to study the storage and thermal stability of a JP-8 fuel produced from the GPGP liquid by-products streams. Sediments and deposits from stability tests were analyzed by IR and probe microdistillationhigh resolution mass spectroscopy. Results were compared with corresponding results from a conventional petroleum-derived JP-8 fuel.
