Defense Department buys supply of bio-Jet fuel used in Boeing U-787


Sustainable Oils, a producer of renewable, environmentally clean, and high-value camelina-based fuels, announced today it has been awarded a contract by the Defense Energy Support Center (DESC) for 40,000 gallons of camelina-based jetfuel. The fuel will be delivered to the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) in 2009and will support the Navy`s certification testing program of alternative fuels.

In August, camelina again performed under high-test conditions in a 100
