The research is backed by an investment of $6.7 million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, UOP will develop and commercialize a process to produce Jet Propellant 8 used by U.S. and NATO militaries.
UOP will work with Honeywell Aerospace, Cargill, Arizona State University, Sandia National Laboratories and Southwest Research Institute on the project.
