In the case of kerosene, purchase of CO2
certificates is mandatory as of 2012, and according to IATA voluntary self-commitments of airlines are aiming for CO2-neutral growth from 2020 onwards. This implies significantly higher
quality requirements and production cost.
Currently available bio-kerosene is often produced via hydro treating of palm oil which is recognized as driver for increasing tropical deforestation.
Greasoline technology converts sustainable non-food raw materials like camelina or jatropha as well as corresponding residues into high quality bio jet fuel components.
Formation of alkylated benzenes in the greasoline process is a major advantage over existing processes like Hydro-processed Esters and Fatty Acids (HEFA) which are depending on alkylated benzene sources from fossil jet fuel.
