Dry Process Algae Bio Jet Fuel

DPABJF for short is a powdered fuel made specifically for combustion in jet turbine engines.

Compact Contractors for America, LLC has developed a specific methodology for dehydration and pulverization of raw algae to create a viscous powdered that is ideal for combustion in a jet turbine engine.

THE PROBLEM

By 2015 we run out of petroleum fuel for the United States Military.  Over the past year, the United States military consumed 75 million barrels of petroleum oil, most of which was used to keep the US Air Force in flight (1 barrel of oil = 42 US gallons).  Prices are going up, availability is going down. If the Middle East sources of oil embargos the US or instability creates a loss of production, US Military aircraft are grounded.

Pentagon officials have told the House Appropriations  Defense Subcommittee a gallon of fuel costs the military about $400 by the time it arrives in the remote locations in Afghanistan where U.S. troops operate.

THE SOLUTION

Domestic or In Theater Processing-Made from raw algae based materials harvested in the USA or in the theater of operations. Algae grow anywhere.  The US has vast sources that are considered nuisances in lakes and streams all over the country. Algae enables military commanders the capability of creating jet fuel in the field, and you would eliminate the danger and expense that petroleum fuel deliveries now experience. “In Afghanistan, by using algae you can now create jet fuel from indigenous sources and rely on these sources for operation in theater, you’d not only be able to source energy for the military, but you’d also be able to leave an infrastructure that would be more sustainable.”

  • The Marines operating in southern Afghanistan consume more than 88,000 gallons of the fuel per day.
  • Military-grade fuel which cost the U.S. Military about $400 per gallon once all the expenses of ferrying it into Afghanistan are factored in.
  • Dry Algae Bio Jet Fuel can be produced in volume for $2.00 to $3.00 per gallon.  Current jet fuel prices are $3.00 to $3.75 per gallon. The process is inexpensive, the materials are inexpensive, the margins are substantial.

Military Saves Money With Algae Aviation Fuel

Why is this better than liquid jet fuels?

CHEAPER… Unlike liquid bio jet fuels that require extensive and expensive processing, DPBJFA is much cheaper to make.  The process is simply drying and grinding to make the powdered fuel.  Also, since DPABJF can use any algae with 15% lipid content (vegetable oil), raw algae can be harvested from a variety of wild sources.  Liquid bio jet fuel requires high lipid content algae, which requires a very controlled environment to produce.

LIGHTER

Liquid jet fuel weighs about 6.8 pounds per gallon.  DPABJF weighs 48% less than liquid without any additives.  The weight per gallon will vary with the strain of algae used.

MADE in USA

Since algae grows anywhere and everywhere, we can produce jet fuel right here, in the United States.

GREAT!  When will my next commercial air trip use your DPABJF fuel?

Not for awhile yet.  Though the fuel is generally compatible with current fuel delivery systems, there are some modifications needed.  At this time we are focusing on small production aircraft, like target drones and UAV’s.  But, more about that in our “Target Market” area of the website.
