A small sample of Algal oil was received by UOP for conversion to synthetic paraffinic kerosene SPK for blending with HiSol-10 aromatics to produce a sample of JP-8 aviation turbine fuel. As received this sample was not acceptable for conversion to SPK and was sent to POS for pre-treatment. A small sample of oil, approximately 720 ml was sent to UOP for processing into SPK. This sample was processed using the UOP Green Jet process to make an SPK product. The SPK was blended with HiSol-10 at a level of 75 SPK and 24 HiSol-10 to produce 300 ml of final JP-8 fuel. This sample was forwarded to the Fuels Branch of the Air Force Research Lab at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base for analysis. This sample met all specifications of Mil Spec MIL-DTL-83133G for MP-8 aviation turbine fuel.
