This Week in Industrial Biotechnology

This week according to the New Energy World Network

“The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of the Navy are to develop advanced biofuels and other renewable energy systems.”

“Secretary of the Navy, Ray Mabus emphasised how partnering with USDA supports his vision for energy reform. He said, ‘In order to secure the strategic energy future of the United States, create a more nimble and effective fighting force, and protect our planet from destabilizing climate changes, I have committed the Navy and Marine Corps to meet aggressive energy targets that go far beyond previous measures.

Mabus announced five energy targets for the Navy and Marine Corps, with biofuels a major component. This includes developing ships with hybrid electric alternative power systems running on biofuel, and aircraft running on biofuel. The navy will also aim to cut petroleum use in its 50,000 non-tactical commercial fleet in half, by phasing in hybrid, flex fuel and electric vehicles, by 2015.”

So it looks like the Navy is going green.
