The United States imports almost 50 percent of the oil it consumes and sends $1 billion a day overseas—some of it to regimes hostile to U.S. interests. Advanced biofuels, currently being tested and used by the Department of Defense as well as several commercial airlines, offer the nation a real opportunity to diversify and increase its use of domestic fuels while positioning U.S. companies and farmers to be global leaders in the industry.  The departments of Defense, Agriculture, and Energy are working with the private sector to spur more production of advanced aviation and marine biofuels to power military and commercial transportation. This session will focus on the important role the public and private sectors can play in bringing these fuels to market in order to enhance security and provide widespread economic benefits.   

The Pew Project on National Security, Energy, and Climate is dedicated to highlighting the critical linkages between national security, energy independence, the economy, and climate change. For more information, please visit www.PewTrusts.org/EnergySecurity.
