BTL-Bio Jet Fuel + CHP+++, Special Economic Developement Zone Development in the Sub Tropical Regions.
Johann Gutenburg's contribution to the world is frequently touted as his invention of the printing press. The truth is that Gutemburg did not invent a single element of the press, he invented nothing. His brilliance, product design from a synergy of inventions.
Earlier this year, before the ink could dry on a low media profile set of papers, certification of a Bio Jet Fuel occurred; the world economic order changed.
In this forum we should be recording that historic event. The opportunity for a "new global industry" fell into place.
Copenhagen will take centre stage to deliver more policies that seek to assist with the management of Climate Change, within a battery of directives the Aviation Industry will be challenged to maximise the reduction of its CHG emissions on a global scale.
The aviation industry is one of a handful of industries that has global operational standards or, can adopt new global standards. Certified Bio Jet Fuel can be produced by two main methhodologies. FT and the Hydroprocessing of plant oil.
Biorefineries are being engineered to deliver Certified Bio Jet Fuel yet they deliver much more potential. CHP outputs, Bio Chemicals, Bio Plastics, Green Diesel, syngas to mention a few of the high priority outputs.
We should make no mistake regarding the importance of the global aviation networks, nor should we discount just how important this industry is for the sustained well-being of the least developed regions of the world.
Subsistence agriculture. There is no need to increase agricultural production when one cannot get a surplus to market for an economic return. Millions of reasonable arable land lies idle throughout the sub tropical regions while great swaths are pummelled year upon year to produce more in locations that afford a return on investment (energy-time-money).
Throughout all of Africa,India,China, Arabia, most small island states each nation is import dependant on food oil. On the outer reaches of society in Africa they pay about $2.50 for a litre of imported Palm Oil (sometimes much more). You'd think that farmers would be out there producing to off-set imports and gain profits. The truth is without investment, mechanisation, harvest protection, processing or finance there is no incentive (returns).
Subsistence management of staple foods gains some return while there are some Ram presses working to deliver a fraction of the demand for food oils at locations where market intervention can be had. Its a bleak picture when we decide to turn food oil into transport fuel which moves the price up.
One has to flip back some pages of history to understand how the great palm oil plantations of Malaysia and Indonesia came about. Where the incentives, investments, promotions, policies cemented the foundations that have sustained this industry. One should not be surprised to observe that the very agencies that cry the loudest about Climate Change, Conservation, Poverty, Land Use, Water use and and and; were the designers, supporters, facilitators, financiers.
Non food oil from non food land at global commercial advanced fuel replacement levels will take as much, if not more, investments to establish a sustainable new industry platform.
Bio Jet Fuel exported FOB from rural strategic locations of the sub tropical zones is a lead to market, highly desirable, global priority export product. Biorefinery technology that produces certified Bio Jet Fuel as a primary export output delivers incentive as the related outputs are CHP +++, additional liquid fuels.
Establishing decentralised energy from non food Biomass grown professionally on semi arid rain fed lands in sub tropical least developed economic regions; that have strategic least cost routes to direct output markets, from advanced Biorefinery services, is highly desirable.
The combined interests of this group may lead to establishing the synergy of activity required to realise new industry.
