Summary The Department of Defense intends to reduce its exposure to the national energy security and evaluate a range of alternative fuel sources. Advanced biofuels could be an important part of that mix. Already, in 2011, the Defense Logistics Agency procured 450,000 gallons of advanced drop-in biofuels from Dynamic Fuels and Solazyme Corp., the largest government procurement of biofuels in history. The RIMPAC exercise successfully demonstrated that an entire carrier battle group and its air wing can operate in an operational environment on a 50:50 blend of 'drop-in' advanced biofuels. The military is an important first market for advanced biofuels. Because of rapid advances in technology and the economies of scale that will come from these investments, the long-term potential for this industry means that it could become a key part of America's entire fuel supply. This would reduce America's dependence on oil and increase our national security over the long run
