Biofuels Digest’s 2012 Best New Fuel Award: ARA, Chevron Lummus Global, 100% drop-in aviation biofuel

Jim Lane | December 31, 2012

Aviation biofuels is, without a doubt, one area in which just about everyone agrees that biofuels have a strong future, if the economics are there and the product is a drop-in fuel. Well, nothing is more of a drop-in than a 100% drop-in, but to this point, a shortage of aromatics in renewable aviation fuels have restricted biofuel blends to 50/50 with fossil fuel. That cuts out, potentially, 30 billion gallons of global demand – and is there ever demand.

Along comes, via a partnership between ARA and Chevron Lummus Global, a technology that produces for the first time, a 100% drop-in fuel. Flight testing is now underway – a key step towards certification. Agrisoma (producing the underlying carinata feedstock) and Aemetis (as a production site for the fuels) are in the partnership mix too.
