Farm to Fly Act: New legislation will speed up production of sustainable aviation fuel

The Farm to Fly Act would use existing USDA programs to allow more alternative fuels to be used in the aviation sector as well as create new markets for American farmers.

New legislation has been introduced to speed up both the production and development of sustainable aviation fuel.

The Farm to Fly Act would use existing USDA programs to allow more alternative fuels to be used in the aviation sector as well as create new markets for American farmers.

Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO, Geoff Cooper says, “This important legislation creates more clarity and stability around the development of sustainable aviation fuels made from U.S. crops. This bill helps position SAF for take-off by ensuring the best available science and modeling tools are used to calculate the carbon benefits of homegrown renewable fuels.”

Companion legislation has also been introduced in the House.
