Sustainable Aviation Fuel Policy in the United States

Register for this Event  

On-Line Event


The aviation sector has been working to decarbonize, but it faces unique challenges since decarbonization options that may work for ground or maritime transport are generally not feasible for air travel. Sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) present an opportunity to decarbonize the aviation sector, but federal policies that address SAF have largely included it as an add-on to existing policies that are meant primarily to address ground transportation.


Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center for a conversation with Fred Ghatala, author of the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center’s report, “Sustainable aviation fuel policy in the United States: A pragmatic way forward,” and director for carbon and sustainability at Advanced Biofuels Canada.


The Honorable Rick Larsen, US congressman for Washington’s second district, will deliver opening remarks. This event will be moderated by Dr. Jennifer Gordon, managing editor and senior fellow at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center.
