From Fat to Fuel.

Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a way to convert vegetable oils and other oils from animal fat into jet fuel to propel aircraft. Technology that they find - the so-called Centia - a 100 percent green technology, because there is no origin of petroleum products that added to the process. Because there is no soot or particulate matter associated with fuel from fats, the fuel produced by the new process also burns cleaner, so better for the environment.

Dr. William Roberts, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and director of the Applied Energy Research Laboratory at NC State, developed the biofuels process, together with Dr. Henry Lamb, a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering; Dr. Larry Stikeleather, professor of biological and agricultural engineering; and Tim Turner of Turner Engineering in Carrboro, NC

Roberts said that in addition to 100 percent green, this new technology has several key advantages over projects other biofuels.

"We can use almost all lipid-based materials, or materials shot with fat source - including what is considered a low-quality raw materials such as cooking oils - and turn it into almost any fuel," Roberts said. "Using low-quality raw materials are usually 30 percent cheaper than using corn oil or canola oil to make fuel. And we do not interfere with food supplies directly, such as ethanol-based fuel made from corn. "

NC State while getting patents for use in the process to convert fats into jet fuel and bio-gas, and making substances additives for biodiesel fuel in cold weather. This technology has been maintained, licensed by Diversified Energy Corp.., A private company in Arizona who specializes in technology development and alternative energy projects and renewable.
