  • A transportation industry fight over vegetable oil and animal fats is heating up as the sector races to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • The consulting firm that authored that report, LMC International, prepared a separate study two months earlier for the National Association of Truck Stop Operators that determined a finite supply of waste oils and fats could shift from renewable diesel to SAF if Congress passes extra tax credits for aviation.
  • Analyses by the global consultant firm ICF and the Department of Energy found that while almost all SAF production today uses oils and fats, that would shift in the coming decades as other technologies scale.
