• Researchers at IIT Jodhpur have developed a novel iron-based catalyst that can produce bio-jet fuel from non-edible oils and waste biomass. The catalyst is highly reusable and works under mild reaction conditions, making the process cost-effective and eco-friendly.
  • The catalyst used by the IIT Jodhpur researchers for bio-jet fuel production is an iron-based catalyst supported on silica-alumina. The catalyst was synthesized by a simple combustion method using iron nitrate, silica, and alumina as precursors.
  • The bio-jet fuel can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide a sustainable alternative to petroleum fuels for the aviation sector.
