Diesel and jet fuels based on the oligomerization of butene

  • US Patent No. 9181144
  • Issued: November 10, 2015
  • Status: Active
Energy

A renewable biofuel based on a highly efficient batch catalysis methodology for conversion of 1-butene to a new class of potential jet fuel blends. By tuning the catalyst and then using the dimer produced, the carbon use is about 95% or greater. This latter point will be particularly important in the future, where the source of raw materials (i.e., biomass/biofeedstock) is limited.
