G.P. Resources inks Navy, Air Force biodiesel contract

By | June 01, 2005
G.P. Resources Inc. in Rancho Dominguez, Calif., was awarded a two-year contract to supply B20 to the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force. According to George Hopwood, G.P. Resources manager of government and distributor sales, the company will ship the renewable fuel to these southern California sites: Barstow, Camp Pendleton, Mirimar Marine Corp. Air Station, Edwards Air Force Base, VandenBerg Air Force Base and two sites at the San Diego Naval Station. An approximate 3.2 million gallons of biodiesel will be used in the two-year period. The contract, which expires March 31, 2007, is estimated at $5.3 million, but Hopwood said the price tag would fluctuate along with current gas prices.

G.P. Resources receives most of its biodiesel from World Energy and blends it on-site.
