The CEO of a biofuels group says new, bipartisan legislation that’s been introduced in Congress would level the playing field for sustainable aviation fuel.
Emily Skor with Growth Energy says the bill would use a model that measures the life-cycle impacts of fuels. “The GREET Model, which comes from our Department of Energy and Argonne National Labs, that is the gold standard. We want that model used across the board in any regulatory scheme.”
The Sustainable Aviation Fuel Accuracy Act, introduced by Congressman Mike Flood (R-NE) and Congresswoman Nikki Budzinski (D-IL), would use the Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Technologies Model to determine the amount of tax credits airlines can receive.
