Study details path to sustainable aviation biofuels industry in Northwest
Date:5/25/2011

vironmental footprint, from clean fuel sources for taxis and shuttles to electrification of ground equipment and pre-conditioned air, but in order to take the next big step we have to address emissions from aircraft," said Bill Bryant, Port of Seattle commission president. "We can't get there without biofuels. It not only will help the sustainability of the Northwest but also the aviation industry."

Dr. John Gardner, vice president for Advancement and External Affairs at Washington State University, said: "WSU will combine our world-class biofuel and agricultural researchers along with significant institutional assets to leverage the Northwest's abundance of agricultural and natural resources necessary to create a dynamic new aviation fuels industry. The long-term payback will be a stateside industry that greatly enhances our traditional economic strengths; from farming and forestry to engineering and aerospace, creating new opportunities and new jobs for the Northwest."

Launched in 2010, the SAFN initiative united more than 40 regional stakeholders ranging across aviation, biofuels production, environmental advocacy, agriculture, forestry, federal and state government agencies, academic research and technical consultancies. Climate Solutions, a Northwest clean-energy economy nonprofit, facilitated the stakeholder process and took the lead in researching and drafting the report.

"The course is clear that aviation biofuels are key to the future of sustainable air travel," said Lawrence J. Krauter, chief executive officer, Spokane International Airport. "We can no longer base our future on imported petroleum, especially if the United States wants to remain an aviation leader. The SAFN study proves domestic biofuels are feasible and offers an economic opportunity for us to remain competitive as an industry and move toward a sustainable, domestic fuel supply."
