Government makes largest biofuel purchase


The government announced its largest purchase of biofuel on Monday.

A contract was signed by the defense Logistics agency to purchase 450,000 gallons of advanced drop-in biofuel, the largest amount in history.

The biofuel is made up of a blend of non-food waste (used cooking oil) from a joint venture which includes Tyson foods and algae produced by Solazyme.

The fuel will be used by the U.S. Navy for an international maritime exercise.
