UOP, a Honeywell company, is accelerating its research and development (PDF) on converting vegetable and algal oils to military jet fuels, Industryweek reports.

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.
