Coast Guard, Cummins partner to study biodiesel in marine inboard engines

December 20, 2011 |

In Washington, the Coast Guard announced its intent to enter into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with Cummins, Inc., to identify and investigate the advantages, disadvantages, required technology enhancements, performance, costs, and other issues associated with using biodiesel fuel blends in marine inboard engines, with the overarching goal of reducing their Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions (i.e., lower carbon footprints).

The Coast Guard invites public comment on the proposed CRADA and also invites other non-Federal participants, who have the interest and capability to bring similar contributions to this type of research, to consider entry into similar CRADAs.
