This report provides interim guidance on evaluating exposures to the most common jet fuel and additives used in the U.S. Air Force, Jet Propulsion Fuel-8 JP-8. The report is interim because there are a number of emerging fuels such as synthetic paraffinic kerosene and biofuels that are already approved for use on Air Force weapon systems but whose occupational and environmental exposure limits OEELs are not well-defined. OEELs recommended in this report for JP-8 should be sufficiently conservative to be applied to emerging fuels and their blends with JP-8. Contract efforts are currently underway to evaluate the toxicity of emerging fuels, and the U.S. School of Aerospace MedicineOccupational Environmental Health Department anticipates further exposure guidance will be issued from those efforts.
