China approves biobased aviation fuel for commercial use

Chinese government has approved a biobased aviation fuel for commercial use. The Civil Aviation Administration of China has granted Sinopec the first certificate of airworthiness for biobased jet fuel.

A statement released by the CAAC indicates the biojet complies with the CTSO-2C701. Information published by the CAAC in mid-2012 indicates the standard applies to civil aviation jet fuel containing synthesized hydrocarbons. According to information published on the standard, it requires alternative fuel and its synthetic paraffinic kerosene (SPK) component to conform to ASTM D7566-11a, which is a specification for aviation fuel containing synthesized hydrocarbons, and the supplement in CTSO-2C701.

In April 2013, Sinopec announced the success of the first test flight powered by its aviation biofuel. According to the company an Airbus A320 owned by China Eastern Airlines completed an 85-minute flight on biojet made from palm oil and recycled cooking oil feedstocks.
