World Economic Forum, Ag Groups Urge More Support for SAF 

new report from the World Economic Forum says industry collaboration, the adaptation of existing infrastructure, greater investment in R&D and increased public education and public-sector engagement are key to scaling SAF to meet the growing demand in the United States. The recommendations were based on input provided by stakeholders in the aviation and energy industries. 


The report found a mere 1% of U.S. stakeholders consider the current regulatory framework for SAF to be sufficient. The overwhelming majority consulted by WEF said there needs to be increased support at both the state and federal levels, as well as long-term incentives and mandates to facilitate the scaling of production. 


In a related development, biofuel producers and agriculture advocates sent a letter to U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen urging the Biden administration to swiftly resolve hurdles to ramping up SAF production.  


The business aviation community continues to call for increased public and private sector investment in SAF because the fuel is critical to achieving the industry’s ambitious goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
