Non Bacterial Way for Production of Biofuel for Jet Engines

Pages: 19 - 21

Keywords: biofuel, non-bacterial, economical

Production of a biofuel for jet engines is a priority research topic. Construction of similar chemical composition as that of the existing jet fuels is of absolute requirement. A similar production technique of producing the bio jet fuel from various polysaccharide sources is possible to be carried on to obtain required paraffin composition to substitute the JP 8 jet fuel by typical reaction procedure. Hydrolysis of polysaccharide to form disaccharides which are then processed through de-esteification chamber to form sugars which can be treated to form fattyacids and thus paraffins of required composition after reduction, decarboxylation and anaerobic pyrolysis is the suggested reaction procedure. This reaction procedure can be observed to be carried out with out any metabolism involved which encourages the pace of reaction and thus the economical viability of the process for long time existence.
