Jet Fuel, Additives, Water, and Green Jet Fuel.

But it isn't....it is all part and parcel of the entire premise.

This is not to mention that once there is demand the land previously used for crops will be converted to oil seed.

I know what they claim as it is only to be used as a rotation crop but when you remove the rotation crop you have removed the purpose of rotation crops which is to revitalize the soil and add back in the plant mass to hold the soil

Mike you are insisting that there is magic going on with synthetic jet fuel

In what way is anything I've said "magic"?

Perhaps you could enlighten me on just how the plant oil based fuels and or blends can get lower consumption rates while also reducing emissions while also giving the same thermal output.

I have no idea - where did I say any such thing?

Of course the sulfur will be eliminated but that is not the only newest emission reduction claims that I am seeing in the whiz bang "green" jet fuel world.

AFAIK the emission advantages are that the production of the fuel is not adding NEW carbon to the atmosphere as fossil fuels do - nothing at all about the actual makeup of the exhaust being significantly different.

algae is one of the new technologies that "promises" to generate much more fuel per land area than any crops - hence lessening the need for more land.

Plus of course we already do grow enough food for everyone anyway......

It is not cost competitive

Nowhere do I see where the cost per pound/gallon of finished fuel is stated.

It is more government money paid out which we all pay for in taxes.

how can you conclude that it is all subsidized if you cannot find het actual costs?? :confused:

It didn't take much of a search to find some information on the topic, so I guess you didn't try very hard:

Or less academically here -

Yes - as I said



the standard for Jet A1 is Def Std 91-91 - AFAIK rev 7 is the latest and is available on the web if you search
I read it but your link did not render more than the first page.

I had forgotten the requirement of even the more severly hydro processed petroleum stocks for added oxygen stabilizers.

I still stand by my contention that the plant based fuels as a whole carry more bound water than their petroleum counterparts.

There is no spec in your Std for bound water only free water as I knew.

I am in farm country and know what it takes ball park to get a crop from seed to bunker.

I ran the numbers numerous times several years ago and the break even point then with a lower fuel equipment and seed cost was 170 to 180 BBL of crude to be viable.

I will search and find the list of subsidies already spent to get the bio jet fuel going.

I will offer this Mike

I will put up 5 dollars that within three years we will hear about more contrails and plant based fuels will be a contributing factor to the increased vapor.

We seem to have spun back to the myopic vision that CO2 is the only greenhouse gas we should be concerned with and it isn't at all.

You wanted a link to the thermal value - not the bound water specs!! There is no bound water in kerosene - which is why there is no standard for it. Water can be emulsified or "suspended", but usually settles out overnight, which is why fuel drains are usually done first thing in the morning. Any solubility of water in JetA1 is insignificant.

The thermal capacity at combustion is given as a minimum of 42.8 Mj/Kg in Table 3 of the standard, which opens fine for me.

Argument by association...yawn...

I haven't spun back there at all - it has never been part of the discussion I was having, and it is well known that water vapour is far and away the most important greenhouse gas due to the sheer bulk of it in the atmosphere.

looks to me like you're changing the topic and avoiding any meaningful discussion.....o_O

That is the minimum for military yet your supplied plant oil link listed a range that goes above and below it.

Let me ask you then where does the water for contrails come from?

I appreciate you mocking me and telling me that I didn't do what I did in looking at the situation.

I must of dreamed all the numbers I did in looking at an oil plant here in the area.

Have a nice night and do you or do you not accept my wager?

I think that will answer your question @Rns. While there may be some very very very small amounts of water in the fuel itself, its more of a result of carbon being expelled in the exhaust providing something for the water molecules in the air to cling to, creating contrails.. which (IIRC) has been explained several times. If I also recall, there are methods built into the fuel systems of aircraft to bleed out the moisture so that the risk of crystallization damage from ice is minimized.

Not really. It's the water created by burning the fuel that raises the humidity high enough to trigger condensation.

biofuels burn a little cooler which will in many instances increase apparent water vapor at the exhaust and in current jets would seem very likely to increase the likelihood of visible contrails.
That's true, but future integrated air traffic control systems will be able to send aircraft through less-saturated air, effectively reducing visible contrail pollution to occasional small accidents. That'll be nice. :)
