Sustainable aviation fuel, made from bio-based sources instead of petroleum, plays a key role in reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. But developing sustainable aviation fuel, also known as biojet, is not an easy task.
Two new publicly available web-based software tools developed at Berkeley Lab, with funding support from the U.S Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office, aim to help researchers and companies quickly test different scenarios and explore viable bio-based fuels and products without ever stepping foot in the lab.
Led by the Joint BioEnergy Institute’s Corinne Scown and Vi Rapp, research scientist in the Environmental Technologies Area, this research enables scientists and companies to gain the knowledge they need to select feedstocks and products that will make their first pilot runs more successful, speeding up the time to commercialization.
