DOE, DOD aim for take-off: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to Biofuels in Defense and Aviation

August 21, 2017 |

In June 2011, the Secretaries of Agriculture, Energy, and Navy signed MOU to commit $510M (up to $170M from each agency) to produce hydrocarbon jet and diesel biofuels in the near-term. This initiative sought to achieve multiple, commercial scale integrated biorefineries, cost-competitive biofuel with conventional petroleum (w/o subsidies), domestically produced fuels from non-food feedstocks, and drop-in, fully compatible, MILSPEC fuels (F-76, JP-5, JP-8). With the US Navy and Air Force as initial customers, the Secretaries aimed to transform the marketplace for renewable jet and marine fuels.

How’s that effort proceeding? This illuminating presentation from the DOE’s Zia Haq and Borka Kostova was given at the 2017 DOE Project Peer Review.
