Abstract

Air transportation continues to grow positively over the years, and the growth is accompanied by the increase in aviation's environmental impact, particularly the pollutant emissions. Alternative jet fuels have been introduced as a substitute with the aim to reduce the emissions as well as the industry’s high dependency on conventional jet fuel. In this study, the application of alternative jet fuel, specifically Bio-SPK from jatropha and camelina, as well as their blends have been evaluated in terms of their impact towards engine performance and the environment. Further evaluations have been emphasized on environmental performance at landing and take-off cycle. The potential benefit of using alternative jet fuels in terms of aircraft emission charges is also discussed.
