Abstract

Aviation fuels derived from the gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology may be used as drop-in alternatives to conventional oil-derived fuels. Reliable composition-property relations must be developed based on experimental data to correlate the hydrocarbon compositions of formulated synthetic fuels with their properties to be certified for aviation commercial use. An experimental and property-integration framework for the design of synthetic jet fuels from GTL-based kerosene derived by evaluating the role of aromatics on resultant fuel properties is presented. The experimental results were used to develop property-mixing rules and linear programming for the design of optimum fuel compositions that meet the ASTM specifications. The role of aromatics on critical physical properties for jet fuel certification is revealed. A practical solution for jet fuels blending through optimization of jet fuel formulation based on cost and technically effective manners is provided.
