Gevo, Los Alamos to collaborate to develop high-energy-density renewable missle fuel

By mmillikin Gevo, Inc. will be partnering with Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) on a project to improve the energy density of certain Gevo hydrocarbon products, such as its alcohol-to-jet-fuel (ATJ) (earlier post), to meet product specifications for tactical fuels for specialized military applications such as RJ-4 (exo-dime- thyltetrahydrodicylopentadienes), RJ-6 (a blend of JP-10 and RJ-5) and JP-10 (exo-Tetrahydrodicyclopentadiene). ChemCatBio, a consortium within the US Department of Energy, awarded funding to LANL in support of the project as one of 9 projects to accelerate the development of catalysts and related technologies for the commercialization of biomass-derived fuels and chemicals.
