WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Coalition’s Executive Director, Alison Graab, issued the following statement regarding the sustainable aviation provisions included in the House Committee on Agriculture’s Farm, Food, and National Security Act of 2024: 

“The SAF Coalition applauds the House Committee on Agriculture for a good first step in the further advancement of SAF.  The Committee’s affirmation of SAF as an advanced biofuel in the farm bill will make SAF eligible for important U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) programs and help to develop a critical new market for crops and agricultural waste streams. Although more work remains, the provisions of the bill affirming SAF as an advanced biofuel and providing for greater USDA collaboration regarding SAF underscore the significant role of SAF — not just in providing a clean and reliable jet fuel — but in also supporting rural economic development, creating a new market and economic opportunities for farmers, and ensuring American energy security.”
