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.
