Gevo, a leading renewable chemicals and next-generation biofuels company, was put on contract last year to provide the USAF 11,000 gallons of its ATJ fuel derived from isobutanol for testing by the AFCD. Gevo’s patented ATJ fuel is truly a drop-in fuel, deliberately designed to be fully compliant with aviation fuel specifications and provide equal performance, including fit-for-purpose properties.“The AF previously ran a series of engine ground tests, using the 50/50 blend of the ATJ and JP-8,” said Jeffrey Braun, Division Chief of AFCD. “Data was then compared with previous results from JP-8 baseline testing. Engine performance parameters monitored during the testing remained unchanged when utilizing the ATJ fuel blend. We were very pleased with the technical performance of the ATJ material.”
