Public procurement localisation

On June 1, 2014 the Department of Defense (DoD) awarded a $42,478,768 contract under the Advanced Drop-In Biofuels Production Project to establish one or more complete domestic value chains capable of producing drop-in replacement biofuels. The contemplated effort will include the design, construction, validation, qualification and operation of one or more domestic commercial-scale Integrated Biofuel Production Enterprises (IBPE) that meet a target of at least 10 million gallons per year neat biofuel production capacity.
 
This contract (PA# 88ABW-2014-3536) was awarded to Emerald Biofuels, LLC, Fulcrum Brighton Biofuels, LLC, Natures BioReserve, LLC, and Red Rock Biofuels, LLC. The project comes under the authority of the Defense Production Act (DPA), Title III of which authorizes the granting of incentives to create, maintain, protect, expand, or restore the productive capacities of domestic sources for critical components, critical technology items, and industrial resources essential for the execution of the national security strategy of the United States. The principal objective of all DPA Title III investments is to strengthen and expand these domestic productive capacities and to ensure government access to critical technology items well into the future.
