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

ument the economical viability of the proposal. This parallel implementation will help the DOD make further progress in making military bases in the U.S. Net Zero Installations."  

"SU faculty members have a broad spectrum of expertise that will help foster this partnership. For instance, understanding plant molecular biology holds the key to the development and sustainable harvesting of biodiesel crops, while innovative process design and integration are critical in achieving cost-effective production," said Radhakrishna Sureshkumar, professor and department chair of biomedical and chemical engineering in SU's L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science.

"Syracuse University's expertise relating to biofuel science and engineering can make a significant contribution to the industry by advancing the state of the art of feedstock cultivation and production technology," said John Fox, co-author of the report. "Their work is relevant to military bases in New York State and across the country."    

"The U.S. must increasingly turn to renewable energy sources to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels," said Wayne Arden, co-author of the report. "Syracuse's commitment to biofuel research and development is very encouraging, and could benefit the military both overseas and here at home."

In the report, Arden and Fox highlight the five key benefits associated with producing and using biodiesel in Afghanistan:

  • Reduce casualties – A significant percentage of U.S. casualties stem from protecting fuel convoys. The construction of a single, medium-sized biodiesel plant would reduce casualties by four to five soldiers per year.
  • Free up troops for other assignments – By reducing the number of fuel convoys needed, an estimated 120 soldiers each year can be freed up for more critical assignments.
  • Save money – The substitution of biodiesel produced locally i
