In July 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management (LM) achieved two key cleanup milestones at the Pinellas County, Florida, Site in Largo by completing work at two of the site’s four active remediation areas where DOE has been performing corrective actions under a Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments permit since 1990.
The Pinellas site is a former nuclear weapons component production facility 10 miles northwest of St. Petersburg that operated from 1957 to 1997. DOE has been remediating contaminated locations across the site for more than 25 years.

U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) partner Algenol signed an agreement with Protec Fuel to market and distribute commercial ethanol produced from algae for fleets and retail consumption from Algenol’s commercial demonstration module in Fort Myers, Florida. Algenol expects that the first two gas stations offering the fuel will open next year in Tampa and Orlando.
