(via: World Tribune) So now the Pentagon is looking at B-100 From Above. If you have any ideas on how to convert corn oil to military grade JP-8 jet fuel that flows at low temperatures (like those surrounding the C-17 parked in Antarctica, above), now would be the time.
So far, biodiesel fuels have been 25 percent lower in energy density than JP-8. Officials said biodiesel did not flow properly at low temperatures in the atmosphere.
“It is anticipated that the key technology developments needed to obtain the program goal will result from a cross-disciplinary approach spanning the fields of process chemistry and engineering, materials engineering, biotechnology, and propulsion system engineering,” the agency said.
Not sure how I feel about this one, frankly.
