Bio Jet Fuel-Who will be the Supplier? Posted by Aathmika on Thu August 19 2010 08:33:11 AM

Thailand is likely to become the South East Asia hub for jet biofuel by 2012.
Average annual jet fuel demand in Thailand is about 4 billion litres. To meet the demand for biofuel to mix in with jet fuel, the country needs to expand the area of palm oil plantations or turn to other fuel crops such as algae or sweet sorghum.

The Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency Department. has provided financial support to universities for research into making biofuel from algae and sweet sorghum. PTT has its own research and development department and a laboratory for aviation biofuel.

Biofuel from algae may be the best choice since suitable areas for palm tree plantation are limited.
