UOP, a subsidiary of energy company Honeywell, has been chosen to provide the U.S. military with about 600,000 gallons of fuel made from algae and other alternative sources. The biofuels will be blended into regular jet fuel to make synthetic JP-8 for testing purposes, with 400,000 gallons expected to go to the Air Force while the Navy will get 190,000 gallons. The move is aimed at developing options other than conventional fuels in the event of war or a supply shortfall.
