Honeywell to Begin Ethanol -> Jet Fuel Production

New Facility in the Gulf Coast Will Convert Low-Carbon Ethanol into SAF

Honeywell announced the creation of a new facility in the Gulf Coast region of the USA that will annually produce 250 million gallons of SAF per year from ethanol-based feedstocks.
