Groups want accurate LCA for any sustainable aviation fuel tax credits

Groups want accurate LCA for any sustainable aviation fuel tax credits

Congress is considering a tax incentive for sustainable aviation fuels, and biofuel and ag groups are asking that any credit be based on up-to-date life cycle carbon assessment (LCA) methods.

Ed Hubbard, general counsel and vice president for government affairs with the Renewable Fuels Association, says the groups would like to see the Department of Energy become the lead agency in establishing carbon intensity estimates.

“Current legislation relies heavily on modeling from the International Civil Aviation Organization, and we have some concerns with that,” he says.
