  7. Demulsification and Purification System to Recover Contaminated JP-8


    Fuel is critical to any military operation. Preserving fuel that is stored and transported to the battlefield is critical to maintaining a high level of operational effectiveness. Fuel convoys and storage facilities are particularly vulnerable to attack, and in the event of such an occurrence, the fuel must be recovered to mitigate the negative effects this disturbance. Fuel that has been compromi ...
