With price and supply volatility of crude oil based jet fuel expected to accelerate in coming years, alternative fuels like Heliae’s algae derived jet fuel are critical for the future of air travel. Heliae’s scientists, chemists and engineers have developed proprietary technologies and expertise to breakthrough numerous obstacles and produce meaningful quantities of jet fuel from algae. Heliae is currently planning the expansion of its manufacturing and processing capabilities to move to mass production.
Azmark Aero Systems is an innovator in the small gas turbine engine field. Azmark is developing small gas turbine engines ranging in size from the “World’s Smallest Turbine Engine” that produces 300 Watts of continuous power to a 60 HP Turboprop engine for Unmanned Arial Vehicles. “Like Heliae, Azmark is an innovator and we are excited to work with Heliae in their development of jet fuel” said Brad Caban, Azmark President and Chief Operating Officer. “We firmly believe that algae based aviation fuel will play a significant role in the future of air travel with both commercial and military relevance.”
“Heliae is working tirelessly on technology to bring production costs down to a point where algae-based jet fuel can compete,” said Heliae CEO Dan Simon. “We’re thrilled to be working with Azmark, an innovator in the field of small jet engine development and production.”
Heliae, an algae technology development company, is committed to overcoming the world's impending economic and environmental constraints with scalable, cost-effective technology that produces sustainable, drop-in fuel, food and bio-chemicals from algae. Learn more at http://www.Heliae.com.
