Ethanol for Aviation Fuel
"It's appealing to walk in and see that USDA stamp on a piece of steak or something and in the restaurant or in a grocery store. But, you know, we had a part in that.
Schneider said the food versus fuel topic has been something that the team has been working on. One of the goals for the team is to advance the use of more green ethanol for aviation fuel.
"You know, we had a conversation with Southwest Airlines there in St. Louis, and want to get into sustainable aviation fuel. They're looking at it one way we might be looking at it a different way. We have to have those conversations to help each other. There's not going to be one item that'll make all the ethanol, all the sustainable fuel that they need. It's going to take a little of everything to make them help them get over the finish line on what they want to do with their goals."
In addition to the market development team and NCGA action teams include ethanol, member and consumer engagement, production technology access, risk management, transportation, stewardship and sustainability ag research.
