Abstract:

The DoD policy with respect to synthetic fuels is threefold. The first is to qualify and test synthetic fuels to assure the Services that these fuels can be used in fleets of military engines. The second is to provide assistance to the DoE and other Government agencies to achieve early synfuel production capability to meet national security objectives. The third is to assure a common approach and consistency in implementing executive authority under Title I of the ESA and in bringing about a smooth transition from the interim Defense Production Act DPA authority to the establishment of the Synthetic Fuels Corporation.
