Established hydroprocessing technologies to produce aviation fuels from natural oils. supply chains for sustainable aviation fuels utilizing oils from oilseed crops such as camelina, as well as algae and biomass. million gallon/year hydroprocessing facility and supporting functions including feed oil purification and hydrogen production is approximately $250 million. Converting these molecules to the jet fuel range of 10-12 carbon atoms results in a loss of yield.
