The increase in global aviation fuel demand has prompted ICAO to declare neutral carbon growth policy in 2050 by using bio based aviation fuel. The purpose of this study was to simulate the production of non-edible vegetable oil into bioavtur and obtain the most potential nonedible vegetable oil based on yield and conversion to be converted into bioavtur. Three potential sources to be converted into bioavtur are kosambi oil, nyamplung oil and kemiri sunan oil. This research was done by simulating of the hydroprocessing process with process simulator by varying the operating conditions on each raw material. Hydrotreating process was varied at 1-5 MPa pressure and temperature 250°C-350°C. The result showed the operating pressure with the highest conversion and yield are around 4MPa. While the operating temperature with high conversion and yield are above 290°C. Nyamplung oil has overall the largest yield and conversion than other nonedible vegetable oil with average 10% greater conversion and 3,3% greater yield at 2MPa.
