BIO Submits Testimony to House Science Subcommittee Hearing on Sustainable Aviation Fuels

March 24, 2021

The Biotechnology Innovation Organization is pleased to submit a statement for the record to the United States House of Representatives Committee on Science and Technology and Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee hearing entitled, "Examining R&D Pathways to Sustainable Aviation."

BIO applauds the committee for holding this hearing on sustainable aviation.

To tackle the climate crisis, it is crucial to lead with science and U.S. innovation. We must incentivize the adoption of innovative and sustainable technologies and practices and streamline and expedite regulatory pathways for new technology solutions to reduce carbon in hard to abate sectors. In doing so, the federal government can support pioneering breakthroughs that reduce greenhouse gas emissions in manufacturing, transportation, and agricultural supply chains to build a stronger, more resilient, and environmentally sustainable economy.

BIO is committed to working with the Committee, Congress, and the Administration to address the climate crisis. Policy that advances pioneering technology like SAF will lead to breakthroughs reducing emissions in the aviation sector. By supporting science and innovation, we can return our Nation and the world to health and prosperity by taking bold and drastic action to address the climate crisis.
