Aviation: B-naphthylamine

Volume 689: debated on Thursday 22 February 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What discussions have taken place with the Civil Aviation Authority concerning the presence of B-naphthylamine in synthetic jet oil; and what level of B-naphthylamine is permitted in aircraft cabin air; and [HL1960]

What is their response to advice from ExxonMobil that B-naphthylamine is present in its Jet Oil II product. [HL1961]

There have been no discussions with the Civil Aviation Authority on this substance. The department is not aware of the presence of B-naphthylamine in aircraft cabin air. The Government are not aware of such advice from Exxon. We are aware, from the ExxonMobil safety data sheet for Mobil Jet Oil II, that the oil contains N-phenyl 1 Naphthylamine.
