DES PLAINES, Ill., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE:
HON) company, announced today that Honeywell Green Jet Fuel™ produced using
Honeywell's UOP Renewable Jet Fuel process powered demonstration flights by
Gulfstream Aerospace to this year's National Business Aviation Association
(NBAA) convention.

Five Gulfstream aircraft traveled on October 27 and 28 from Gulfstream's
headquarters in Savannah, Ga., to Orlando, Fla., for the NBAA convention, the
world's largest civil aviation tradeshow.

Both engines of the aircraft were powered by a 50/50 blend of Honeywell Green
Jet Fuel and petroleum-derived jet fuel. The renewable fuel was made with
natural oils from camelina, an inedible plant that grows in conditions where
other food crops cannot. This marked the first time Gulfstream's entire fleet
has flown on renewable jet fuel.

"Honeywell Green Jet Fuel has been proven repeatedly throughout the aviation
community as an alternative fuel source that not only meets strict flight
specifications, but also offers significant emissions reductions," said Jim
Rekoske, vice president and general manager of Honeywell's UOP Renewable
Energy and Chemicals business unit. "We are pleased that Gulfstream chose to
incorporate Honeywell Green Jet Fuel into its companywide sustainability
initiative." 

Gulfstream G150, G280, G450, G550 and G650 aircraft participated in the
flights. Previously, Gulfstream's G450 was the only Gulfstream aircraft flown
using renewable jet fuel.

Each gallon of camelina-based Honeywell Green Jet Fuel burned instead of
petroleum reduces the net carbon dioxide equivalent emissions by 68 percent.
Depending on the feedstock, Honeywell Green Jet Fuel can offer a 65 to 85
percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions relative to petroleum-based
fuels.

When used as part of a 50 percent blend with petroleum-based jet fuel,
Honeywell Green Jet Fuel is a drop-in replacement for petroleum-based jet fuel
that requires no changes to aircraft technology and meets all critical
specifications for flight.

Honeywell's UOP Renewable Jet Fuel Process technology was originally developed
in 2007 under a contract from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects
Agency (DARPA) to produce renewable military jet fuel for the U.S. military.
The process technology is fully compatible with existing hydroprocessing
technology commonly used in today's refineries to produce transportation
fuels.

In addition to using Honeywell Green Jet Fuel, Gulfstream's aircraft feature a
wide range of Honeywell Aerospace technology that improves energy efficiency
and the environmental footprint. Honeywell's Flight Management Systems (FMS)
aboard Gulfstream's large-cabin aircraft enable the most efficient use of
airspace in all phases of flight. The HTF7250 propulsion system installed on
the Gulfstream G280 super mid-sized aircraft features the latest SABER1
combustion technology, which reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by 25 percent.

In 2011, a Honeywell-operated Gulfstream G450 became the first aircraft to fly
from North America to Europe with a 50/50 blend of Honeywell Green Jet Fuel
and petroleum-based jet fuel, powering one of the aircraft's Rolls-Royce
engines. It was also the first business jet to be powered by a biofuel.
