The dependency of United States military forward units on logistic fuels, such as JP-8, presents significant tactical and strategic disadvantages, as fuel shortages in times of heightened mission-criticality greatly burden operations. Reducing the logistic fuel dependency gap during these periods would result in marked tactical advantages for American forces. In this Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program, Foster-Miller and the Biomass Energy Foundation propose to address this issue through development of a novel burner system capable of converting logistic wastes and indigenous biomass, in addition to logistic fuels such as JP-8, into a viable energy source for use in non-combat systems such as field kitchens, generators, and other field-deployable systems.
