The US Navy visited the BioCube at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) bioenergy plant in Mackay, QLD on 7 February.
The US Navy intends to have a fleet of warships known as the “Great Green Fleet” running on biofuels by 2016, and by 2020 it plans to run half of its entire fleet on alternative fuels.
Chris Tindal, the US Navy’s Director for operational energy met with QUT’s Professor Mundree and Ian O’Hara.
“The US Navy is meeting institutions in Queensland involved in research and development which could deliver the technology that could be passed on to industry partners, who would ultimately be the suppliers of these fuels on a commercial scale,” QUT’s Professor Sagadevan Mundree said.
