The following statement may be attributed to Beth Ellikidis, BIO's Vice President for Agriculture & Environment:

“Today’s release of an updated methodology to qualify crop-based sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for federal tax credits is a positive step toward meeting the rapidly growing demand for SAF and leveraging agricultural innovation to make air transportation cleaner and greener.

“Biotech innovation is a critical tool to help farmers adopt climate-smart agricultural practices to qualify their crops as tax credit-eligible SAF feedstocks, including no-till farming and microbial biofertilizers. BIO’s member companies stand ready to bring to market the innovations needed to reduce the carbon intensity of agriculture and crop-based fuels.”
