Bipartisan “Farm to Fly” Act Aims for SAF Production

Dept of Agriculture Programs Could be Turned Towards Fueling

A bill was introduced in the hopes of bolstering the development of Sustainable Aviation Fuels using existing Agriculture Department programs, as well as ensuring the USDA’s SAF definitions reflect proper eligibility for American agricultural crops.

The bill boasts fairly wide, bipartisan support in an unexpected turn for something that would provide improved energy security, lower emissions, and (possibly) lower fuel costs for domestic travel. The legislation sports the endorsement of a bevy of farming and fuel associations, with additional support from aviation industry hitters like Airlines for America, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Atlas Air, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, Jet Blue Airlines, and the General Aviation Manufacturers Association.

“By utilizing sustainable aviation fuel, we can cut harmful emissions, support family farmers and reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources,” Budzinski said in a news release. “I’m proud to join Congressman Max Miller and colleagues on both sides of the aisle on the Farm to Fly Act — legislation that will allow homegrown biofuels to power our aviation sector while supporting growth in rural economies. With this bill, we can empower the USDA to drive a sustainable future for our aviation industry.”
