How much algae fuel did the US Navy purchase?



  1. 0 Votes

    Last September, the U.S. navy signed a deal with Solazyme to purchase 150000 gallons of algae-derived advanced biofuels to U.S. military by 2011.The reason for the Navy’s recent investment in algae fuel is because it has set a long-term transition of eventually using 50 percent of its fuel from renewable sources by the year 2020. The transition is also a political move  towards independence from petroleum, as explained by Admiral Phillip Cullom: “We no longer want to be held hostage by one form of energy such as petroleum.”

    Just to be clear, that goal by 2020 is to have half its fuel from renewables and nuclear sources.
