Currently The Only Certified Alternative Fuel

synthfuel. Rentech, Inc. announced Wednesday that ASTM
International’s full governance committee has unanimously
approved modifying the specifications for commercial aviation jet
fuel to include up to a 50/50 blend of synthetic Fischer-Tropsch
jet fuel. The jet fuel certified by the FAA for use in commercial
aircraft relies on ASTM’s specifications. Rentech’s jet
fuel, RenJet, qualifies under the approved specifications of
synthetic jet fuel.
With the ASTM specifications, fuel derived using the
Fischer-Tropsch process, including RenJet produced from renewable
or fossil feedstocks, is the first and currently only alternative
jet fuel certified for use by the FAA. Rentech currently produces
jet fuel at its Product Demonstration Unit that, when blended with
petroleum-derived fuel, meets the ASTM International
specifications. RenJet is biodegradable, clean burning and
virtually free of particulates, sulfur and aromatics.
D. Hunt Ramsbottom, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Rentech, stated, “ASTM’s approval of synthetic jet fuel
for use in commercial aviation marks the achievement of a
significant milestone for Rentech, the commercial aviation industry
and the country.” Mr. Ramsbottom continued, “Rentech is
one of the few companies that has the technology to produce and
supply these fuels to the commercial aviation market and the U.S.
Air Force, which has already certified the use of synthetic fuels
in most of its aircraft.”
