Now that we confirmed the base properties, we are moving on to higher level tests, like o-ring swell and fuel system compatibility. We are confident that these additional tests will yield favorable results.

Integrated Synthetic Fuel Incorporated (ISFuel Inc.) announced the successful testing of Joint Synthetic One (JS-1), the first fully synthetic jet and diesel fuel. JS-1 fuel has recently been tested to both commercial and military, jet and diesel fuel specifications with passing results.
A single fuel that can be universally used in both jet and diesel fuel applications has long been a highly sought after concept, and that is now a developing reality. As seen with the recent Haiti tragedy and current front line combat situations, a joint fuel would ease the logistical fuel requirements of numerous scenarios. A Joint Battle space Use Fuel of the Future (J-BUFF) or Single Battle space Fuel (SBF) has been noted in multiple military presentations as a desired fuel theory.
JS-1 is also fully synthetic, which means that it is not derived from crude oil and fits into the U.S. Air Force’s current effort to switch away from the use of petroleum-based fuels. Utilization of domestic resources to produce synthetic fuel can aid in job recovery while also reducing the current dependence of foreign oil by the United States. Current oil price projections show that the price of crude is not going to decline anytime in the near future.
“Now that we confirmed the base properties, we are moving on to higher level tests, like o-ring swell and fuel system compatibility,” stated R.C. Knight, president of ISFuel Inc. “We are confident that these additional tests will yield favorable results.”
Truly, the further development of fully synthetic fuels would dramatically change frontline and emergency relief fuel logistics. A joint synthetic fuel would not only be a game changer, but it would be a life saver.
