+ - Toward greener jet fuels

Roland Piquepaille writes: "Researchers at Princeton University are currently working on two projects to reduce jet travel's role in global warming. The first one, a major project funded by the U.S. Air Force with $7.5 million, is focused on developing computational models that accurately simulate the burning of jet fuel, a complex process not well understood today. The second one, funded by NetJets, a company providing business jets, will help to develop new jet fuels with near-zero net greenhouse gas emissions. Read more for additional references and a picture of the variable-pressure flow reactor used to determine the chemistry of how petroleum and alternative fuels burn."
