Third Way: A Flight Path for Sustainable Aviation Policy, 10/12/2022
Recently, the Biden Administration released a comprehensive roadmap to dramatically scale up the domestic production of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). Air travel accounts for approximately three percent of all US emissions and will be one of the most difficult sectors to decarbonize, but with the right investments in SAF, we can put the US on track to achieve net-zero aviation emissions by mid-century. In the process, we can position the United States as a global leader in the emerging SAF market.
