Zia Haq, Siva Sivasubramanian, Mark Shmorhun, Mohan Gupta, all from the U.S. Department of Energy, gave this illuminating overview of ORNLs evaluation of bio-oils for use in marine engines, recent reports on the potential for biofuels in marine vessels, NREL and BETO’s results from their techno-economic analysis data, and more at ABLC 2019 in Washington, D.C.
