Hydrotreated renewable jet fuel (HRJ) derived from crop oils has been commercially demonstrated, but full-scale production has been hindered by feedstock costs that make it more costly than petroleumbased fuels. Maintaining low feedstock costs while developing crops attractive to growers will be key to producing affordable HRJ and creating a dependable supply. Several Brassica oilseed species could potentially serve as feedstock, but genotypes agronomically and economically well suited for a… CONTINUE READING
