Wireless Wednesday Exclusive: Kevin M. O’Neil, Senior Business Leader, Renewable Fuels, Honeywell
Kevin O’Neil, Senior Business Leader at Honeywell explains how to further advance sustainability of ethanol-to-jet fuel and how it’s a cost-effective, lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emission path for ethanol-to-jet fuel processing.
Honeywell has developed an innovative ready-now solution that allows for ethanol producers or petrochemical producers to convert corn-based, cellulosic or sugar-based ethanol into sustainable aviation fuel.
Demand for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) continues to grow, and the aviation industry is challenged by limited supplies of traditional SAF feedstocks such as inedible vegetable oils, animal fats and waste oils. A 2021 study by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory concluded that ethanol-to- jet fuel conversion, coupled with smart farming practices and other existing technologies can reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 153% compared to petroleum-based jet fuel.
