The United States announced its goal of reducing aviation-generated pollutant emissions by 20% by 2030, to reach net neutrality by 2050.
According to the US president, they are seeking to establish tax credits to promote the use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), to offset the high production costs of this hydrocarbon.
SAF is a type of fuel made from used cooking oil and animal fats. But compared to traditional jet fuel it can be between two and five times more expensive.
With the use of this fuel, it is expected that in 30 years the American Union will eliminate the use of fossil fuels in aviation.
The United States government expects to supply approximately three billion gallons of SAF annually through 2030 and enough by 2050 to meet 100% demand for aviation fuels.
