U.S. Navy Successfully Tests SoladieselHRD-76(R) During Operational Transit Voyage in USS Ford Frigate

I found this off the Solazyme website. This was a test from Everett, WA to San Diego, CA using Soladiesel. The voyage was fueled using 25,000 gallons of a 50/50 blend using Soladiesel® and petroleum F-76 in the ship's LM 2500 diesel turbines, and marks the first demonstration of the alternative fuel blend in an operational fleet ship.

All the feedback suggests that the operational performance of the biofuel was eqeual to that of traditional fuel.

Hopefully another step in the right direction.
