This paper describes part of results of research work consisting in testing the possibility to use biocomponents in fuels for turbine engines. Because of some similarity and availability as well as that this is the first stage of work, the fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) (from rapeseed oils) were used as the basis biocomponent. Up till now, this ester was used as component of fuel for compression engines. There is no proved information on other use of FAME. The aim of research work is to show possibilities or rather restrictions and risk in case of new application. Some behaviour of biofuels or biocomponents are known. The common virtue is perfect lubricity, and the flaw is chemical and thermal stability. But, these are not only parameters we should notice analysing the applicability. This paper also tries to show other properties, that could restrict the use. It presents biofuels laboratory test results and points the expected problems in case of practical use of such mixtures. The results would be base to engine bench testing.
