Abstract : The Department of Defense is actively pursuing the development of alternative fuels to augment or replace petroleum-based jet fuels. All new fuels are potentially hazardous to Air Force personnel and require toxicity evaluation. Hydroprocessed Esters and Fatty Acids jet fuel (HEFA) is a type of hydrotreated renewable jet fuel currently under consideration. One specific type of HEFA is generated from oils extracted from the camelina plant (Camelina sativa; HEFA-C). In order to… CONTINUE READING
