Dynamic Fuels, LLC, a joint venture between Tyson Foods and Syntroleum Corporation, said today it has won a contract with the U.S. Navy to supply an astounding 450,000 gallons of renewable fuels.

The order marks is the world’s largest single order of advanced biofuel in government history, according to a USDA report.

“Get ready America, because the gallons are on the way as we’re about to make history by leading the world in delivering renewable replacement fuels,” commented Advanced Biofuels Association President Michael McAdams.

“Today’s announcement should effectively silence our fossil fuel detractors as we have yet more proof that advanced biofuels are real and real enough to help better prepare and strengthen America’s armed forces.”

The contract with Dynamic Fuels involves supplying the U.S. Navy with 100,000 gallons of jet fuel and 350,000 gallons of marine distillate fuel.

The fuel is to be used to support the Navy’s development of a “Green Strike Group” composed of vessels and ships powered by biofuel.
