Environmentally speaking, alternative fuels would be part of a greater movement to use biodegradable and sustainable products all over our beautiful green earth. Experimenting with and developing alternative fuel prototypes is part of global effort and scientists are employed in just about every nation, working on making their countries more sustainable. Even so, their efforts are not always recognized until someone else, who has power, authority and a solid reputation, begins to use their alternative fuel prototypes in real engines under real life circumstances.
In America, the U.S. Navy is sailing a Spruance-class destroyer along the California coast, using a 50-50 blend of petroleum based fuel and alternative sustainable oil. This is a positive move in favor of environmental protection for several reasons.
First, military forces from developed nations worldwide already have access to technology which the civilian world catches up on in about five to eight years time. Military structures are designed to use the latest technology and they tend to lead the trend in any new effort to make our lives more enjoyable or easier. Implementing alternative fuel may be the beginning of widespread alternative fuel development and petrol prices which are unbelievably low and cost effective.
Second, militaries worldwide implement new systems and practices which are now in use today. For example, the idea of workplace drug testing would have been highly controversial in private market thirty years, when military forces began using them, but are available today in many forms and to all types of businesses. Clearly, our efforts to keep our earth healthy and safe are bettered by the example set by any military force which uses alternative fuel. The American Navy has set a goal of using completely “green” alternative fuel in all of their sailing vessels by 2016. Envirosafe Solutions applauds all use of alternative fuel in our support of a better planet.
