Marad tests biofuel in Great Lakes Maritime Academy training ship

JUNE 4, 2012 — The Maritime Administration announced today its analysis of a test conducted with algae-based biofuel on one of its large commercial-size vessels. The research used marine engines aboard the Great Lakes Maritime Academy training ship, the TS State of Michigan, to measure emissions reduction impacts.  The project is part of a joint effort by the Departments of Defense and Transportation to reduce the U.S. dependence on petroleum.
