Summary

Purdue and US Navy partner to advance the use of altrenative energy

The U.S. Department of the Navy and Purdue signed a statement of cooperation, agreeing to work together to convert up to half of the Navy and Marine Corps' energy consumption to alternative sources, including biofuels, by 2020.

Through this agreement, Purdue and the Navy and Marine Corps will examine efforts designed to improve energy conservation, renewable-energy generation and the implementation of energy-efficient technologies in all areas of application.

The agreement includes promoting more efficient production and refinement of advanced biofuels and sharing and discussing the results of testing and demonstration projects involving the certification of advanced alternative fuels in aviation and marine engines. The NAvy and Purdue will also pursue agricultural and other biobased feedstocks that will ensure the most economically viable production of advanced alternative fuels.
