MetadataShow full item record
One of the goals of the Department of the Navys (DON) alternative energy initiative is to reduce the Navys dependence on fossil fuel. This project uses DOTMLPF criteria to measure the impact of biofuel use on the Surface Fleet. It provides analysis and recommendations for using replacement drop-in biofuels onboard surface ships based on materiel, maintenance, training, infrastructure, logistics, policy, and cost implications.
