Seattle airport plans to rid itself of fossil fuels in 10 years


The Port of Seattle Commission became the first US airport to set a time for reducing fossil fuel use and having airlines switch to eco-friendly fuels.
The commission called for a minimum of 10 per cent of available eco-friendly jet fuel to be produced locally within 10 years, increasing to 50 per cent by 2050, said a commission press release.
In 2016 the port worked with Boeing and Alaska Airlines for a first-of-its-kind study identifying options for the delivery of SAF to Sea-Tac.
"The port also worked with Carbon War Room on a report analysing supply chain financing options," said the press release.
The port believes the timetable will create a market signal to facilitate the establishment of a domestic/local source of SAF at a commercially competitive rate.
In addition, the motion also recognises the environmental impact to local communities and how SAF could bring the additional benefit of reducing ultrafine particles (UFPs) that could have detrimental impact on air quality and human health.
"The tremendous growth of our airport needs to be met with equally bold efforts to reduce impacts on the environment and the health of the surrounding communities," said Port of Seattle Commissioner Fred Felleman.
