Seattle-area county plans ‘world leading’ sustainable aviation fuel R&D center

Lisa Stiffler of GeekWire reports on a new sustainable aviation fuel R&D center in Washington.

The C3 Take
  • Washington, home to Boeing and ZeroAvia, is planning to expand its aviation innovation dominance with a new sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) research and development center.
  • The center, which would be built using the state’s transportation funds and in collaboration with Washington State University, will look to bring down the cost of SAF manufacturing.
  • In February, Boeing announced that it will double its purchases of SAF this year, buying 5.6 million gallons of SAF.

“One of sustainable aviation fuel’s biggest selling points is the fuel can replace jet fuel in existing aircraft, making it a quicker way to cut carbon emissions from flights. Other clean aviation strategies such as electric- or hydrogen-powered aircraft are still being developed and approved by regulators, and the aircraft in the works are smaller planes — not transcontinental jets.”
