Global Bioenergies and SkyNRG to Collaborate on ASTM Certification of New SAJF Pathway

18 April 2018 – Global Bioenergies and SkyNRG have announced they will work together to qualify Global Bioenergies’ process for converting isobutene to a sustainable alternative jet fuel (SAJF) through ASTM for use in commercial aviation. Global Bioenergies’ pathway entails oligomerization and hydrogenation of isobutene produced from forestry or agricultural wastes to C12 isoparaffins. Global Bioenergies has sent fuel produced in Germany to SkyNRG for preliminary analysis. The aim of the partnership is to accelerate the commercialization of this alternative jet fuel pathway. CAAFI welcomes this partnership and their entry into the ASTM qualification process as another pathway to a more secure and sustainable aviation future.
