U.S. Navy on the prowl for Bio-fuel

biofuelThe U.S. Navy is on the hunt for a copious amount of drop-in bio-fuels, approximately 37 million gallons, to be delivered April 2015 as part of the retrieval for Navy’s F-76 marine diesel and JP-5 shipboard stockpiles of jet fuel.

The U.S. Defense Logistics Agency released a detailed report of the sought-after fuels June 9 in a solicitation to inland, east, and Gulf coast regions, emphasizing that the biofuels are required to meet all military fuel specifications in order to ensure quality and performance.

“Expanding military energy sources improves the reliability of our overall fuel supply, adds resilience against supply disruptions, and gives the military more fuel options to maintain its readiness and defend the national security interests of the United States,” the Navy said.

The deadline for bids is July 9.
