Support grows for sustainable aviation fuel


A policy expert in the airline industry says sustainable aviation fuel can be a worldwide opportunity to help lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Jeff Davidman, vice president of government affairs with Delta Air Lines, says the fuel can accelerate progress toward a net zero future. “We use about four billion gallons of conventional jet fuel every year,” he said. “We’ve made a commitment, as have our partners in the U.S. airline industry, to try and take 10% of conventional jet fuel and make that sustainable aviation fuel by 2030.”

But he tells Brownfield significant investments are needed to boost production.
