Suzanne speaks at the Clean Defense Summit, Washington DC

I gave an update on the advanced bio­fu­els indus­try and its key chal­lenges to defense indus­try col­leagues at this event in April. Among other things we discussed:

  • the attempts by Sen­a­tors Inhofe and McCain, and some of their col­leagues in the House, to block the Navy’s work on advanced renew­able fuels;
  • Sen­a­tor Mark Udall and oth­ers’ suc­cess­ful efforts to defeat those attacks on the Navy’s efforts to tran­si­tion away from near total depen­dence on petro­leum deriv­a­tives for their planes, ships, ground vehi­cles, etc.
  • the Renew­able Fuel Stan­dard weath­ered another storm.
