Renewable Energy World Conference, Long Beach, CA, February 15, 2012 – February 15, 2012: OriginOil Senior VP of Technology Paul Reep presented on “Biofuels and the Department of Defense”. Reep reported on what OriginOil is doing to meet the aggressive renewable fuels mandates from the U.S. Department of Defense, and specifically from the Department of the Navy.
