​US Navy Issues Solicitation For "Drop-In" Biofuel Blends

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), in conjunction with the US Navy, has issued a solicitation for bulk fuels for DLA Energy's customers located in the Inland/East/Gulf Coast regions of the United States.

The solicitation is designed to assist the Department of the Navy in meeting its goals that 10% of its total JP-5 aviation fuel and F-76 naval fuel consist of biofuels. In a statement issued on June 10, 2014, the Navy indicated that at least 37 million gallons of "drop-in" biofuels are being sought in the solicitation. These biofuels can be blended in a range of 10 to 50 percent with conventional petroleum products and should be cost competitive with these petroleum products.

According to the Navy, $27.2 million in Commodity Credit Corp. (CCC) funds are available to defray any additional costs that may exist for fuels derived from domestic feedstocks on a US Department of Agriculture-approved list. The CCC funding is capped at 71 cents per neat gallon of biofuel.
