The Defense industry is facing into a historical sea change driven by increasingly stringent environmental mandates, and the need to deliver more environmentally-compliant fuels to the defense industry, all while facing blending challenges, logistics, and physical capacity constraints. The desire of this specialized industry in obtaining independence from foreign suppliers has become a strategic imperative.
Challenges faced by operators in this industry have been driven by and have resulted in:
- The imperative to reduce greenhouse (GHG) emissions upwards of 80 percent by 2050
- Mandate to meet 2020 target for renewable fuel
- Significant climate/clean energy policy momentum across the defense complex
- Increased industry reliance on costly, incentivized alternative blend fuels
