During the morning session, representatives of the US Department of the Navy (USN), Royal Australian Navy (RAN), and Australian and international shipping and aviation discussed the production of sustainable, high-energy-density liquid fuels for shipping, aviation and heavy logistics vehicles. The afternoon session was an interactive session on how to make the biofuel future happen.
