Researchers at the North Carolina State University have created a new process to make jet fuel out of animal fat and vegetable oil. This technology, called CentiaTM — short for crudus potentia, or “green power” in Latin — is totally “green” and does not involve the use of any petroleum-derived products. The team is currently working on further developing this process to make car fuel as an environmentally-friendly alternative to the traditional gasoline.

New biofuels technology developed by North Carolina State University engineers has the potential to turn virtually any fat source vegetable oils, oils from animal fat and even oils from algae into fuel to power jet airplanes.
