Meet the individuals who are making it happen.
We are in a new era of energy, and the future will depend on economical and sustainable solutions to our everyday transportation fuel needs.
Swift Fuels is committed to this transition and therefore has developed and patented a process to produce pure synthetic hydrocarbon fuels from biomass sources that mimic the properties of both gasoline and kerosene. The fuels are primarily for the aviation industry; however, they will work in any internal combustion engine and thus all other modes of transportation. Using not only biomass as a feedstock but a variety of other renewable sources of carbon, Swift has created fuels that are matched to the engines of our transportation vehicles without the modifications that were necessary with the first generation of bio-fuels.
Swift Fuels not only have a greater energy density over the current petroleum fuels but also burn more efficiently and create fewer deposits in an engine, prolonging engine life. Additionally, Swift fuels burn more efficiently, thus reducing overall exhaust emissions. Swift has demonstrated a reduction in critical greenhouse gases, such as carbon monoxide (CO), by up to 33%.
The driving force for Swift Fuels is the General Aviation market. The current fuel used in general aviation piston engines is 100LL (100 low lead) aviation gasoline, which contains tetraethyl lead (TEL).
Why 100SF is better than the avgas you use today.
