American Boeing and French Airbus, the world's largest aircraft manufacturers, confirmed possibility of using Uzbekistan GTL’s GTL jet fuel as a Jet A-1 component.
According to the Project, Uzbekistan GTL Plant’s GTL kerosene will be used as a component for blending with oil-derived kerosene to produce Jet A-1 semi-synthetic jet fuel. At the same time, specialists of the GTL Plant are working towards obtaining permission of international regulators in the field of jet fuels for direct use of GTL kerosene as a jet fuel without the need to mix it with conventional fuel.
Compared to conventional oil-derived kerosene, GTL kerosene burns with significantly lower levels of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and solid particles. This helps to significantly reduce emissions from jet fuel combustion, making it environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Uzbekistan GTL Plant’s synthetic kerosene annual production capacity is 500 thousand tons.
