Syracuse University Partners with Arden-Fox to Support the Advancement of Department of Defense's Net Zero Energy Initiative
Date:10/18/2010

NEW YORK, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Syracuse University today announced a partnership to advance the use of biofuels by the U.S. armed forces as an alternative energy source.  The effort involves entrepreneurs John Fox '92 and Wayne Arden, who have proposed producing biodiesel in Afghanistan as a means to achieve multiple benefits, including reducing risks to American troops and building a new, sustainable economy in the country.  

With energy demands growing at home bases along with many global deployments creating  logistical challenges, the Department of Defense (DOD) is working to increase the use of renewable energy to reduce dependence on fossil fuel resources and to achieve 'net zero energy' (NZE) throughout the military. The Arden-Fox report "Producing and Using Biodiesel in Afghanistan" analyzed latest off-the-shelf solutions that could be implemented to produce biodiesel in Afghanistan that will reduce casualties as well as create new industry for building a stable nation.

The creation of this new partnership will allow for piloting of the recommendations included in the report and documentation of the economical viability of the proposal.

The paper's inspiration came from the commitment by President Obama to speed up the deployment of 30,000 troops to Afghanistan in 2009 and his announcement of the expected start of troop withdrawal from the country starting in July 2011.  

"We recognize the extensive research and effort that has been put into developing these recommendations," said Gina Lee-Glauser, vice president for research at Syracuse University.  "We believe that these recommendations have the potential to reduce U.S. casualties, and lessen the military's dependence on petroleum. In the coming weeks, we will be partnering with John Fox and Wayne Arden to evaluate a parallel implementation at one or more U.S. military bases. The purpose of this partnership is to pilot the recommendations and doc
