The Avicore Fuel System is a novel high-value aviation bio-fuel solution, produced by a multiple biological-chemical process. The main steps can be divided into a synthetic-biological one (synthesizing the intermediate) and a catalytical one. What we propose is a process where algae and agricultural- and slaughter wastes are used as the feedstock for a genetically modified organism. It will be modified to produce longer alcohols, both branched and linear, as required by the specific application. The alcohols derived from the fermentation process are thereafter chemically transformed into fuel with chemical and physical properties suitable for use in aviation.
