Abstract:

This document provides a guide for working through the commercial approval process for qualifying jet fuel containing materials from hydrotreated fats and oils HRJ for Hydrotreated Renewable for Jet. It is purposefully simple to keep focus on the task at hand, which could easily be obscured in the analysis details. The guide is divided into three sections. 1. The Immediate Plan - the items than need to be done next. 2. The Program Outline - An outline of the overall effort to be undertaken to go from blend stock synthetic paraffinic kerosine SPK to fully synthetic jet fuel FSJF. 3. The Aromatics Effort - A discussion of the specific activities that will be needed to go beyond the approval of HRJ SPK. Before proceeding a note about the role of the original equipment manufacturers OEMs. Throughout the effort to put synthetic jet fuel in the field the acceptance of the OEMs has been critical to the process, for both military and commercial interests. This is because they are the arbiters of Flight Safety. This is both a contractual DOD and regulatory FAA imperative.
