Advanced Biofuels for Military Use

BIO sent a letter to U.S. House and Senate leaders commending Congress for its bipartisan support for the commercialization of renewable fuels and, in particular, advanced biofuels. In the letter, BIO stresses that Section 526 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 has encouraged the use of biofuels within the Department of Defense and other federal agencies, and states that BIO looks forward to working with Congress "as it promotes job growth and investment in the industrial biotechnology sector by continuing its bipartisan support for the use of advanced biofuels within the Department of Defense and other federal agencies."
