Congressional Aviation Leaders, Agency Officials to Be Part of First-Ever Sustainable Business Aviation Fuels Summit

Washington, DC, September 11, 2020 – The Business Aviation Coalition for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF Coalition) today announced that U.S. Reps. Garret Graves (R-La.) and Rick Larsen (D-Wash.), and Acting U.S. Under Secretary for Transportation Policy Joel Szabat will address the Virtual 2020 Business Aviation Global Sustainability Summit, being held Sept. 14-15.

The officials will join others from government, as well as manufacturers, producers, providers/FBOs and operators, to discuss how to increase the production, availability and use of SAF, the cleaner-burning alternative fuel which, on a gallon-per-gallon basis, often reduces net lifecycle CO2 emissions in excess of 50%, versus conventional jet fuel.  

Rep. Larsen chairs the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Aviation, and Rep. Graves is the ranking member for the same subcommittee.

The summit will take place on Monday, Sept. 14 from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. ET, and Tuesday, Sept. 15 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Registration and more on the agenda can be found here.
