Growing demand for sustainable aviation fuels good news for corn farmers

An ag economist says corn growers will benefit from strengthening demand for sustainable aviation fuels.

Paul Bertels with Farmgate Insights tell Brownfield last fall the Biden Administration introduced a challenge for airlines to shift to complete use of sustainable aviation fuel by 2050.    

“When you look at market growth by 2050 that’s projected to be about 35 billion to 37 billion gallons within the US alone.”

He says since the fuel is made from biomass like corn ethanol and soybean oil it will keep the market for those moving, even as vehicle electrification challenges the liquid fuel market.
