Mabus in two upcoming appearances to advance efforts on sustainable aviation fuels

February 22, 2019 |

In Washington, former US Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus will be appearing as a keynote speaker at the Washington Sustainable Aviation Fuels Summit taking place March 7-8 in Seattle, and will also keynote the opening day of ABLC in Washington DC on April 3rd. The long-serving Navy Secretary was instrumental in backing a Great Green Fleet that would give the US Navy more operational flexibility in their fuel supply and conserve electrical energy as well. The Navy was instrumental through its demonstration and fuel purchasing program in driving down the cost of sustainable marine fuels from $25 per gallon (at the time of their first small, experimental testing buy) to $2.07 per gallon by the time he left office.

At the two-day Washington Sustainable Aviation Fuels Summit, you will hear from national leaders on engaging and aligning the entire sustainable fuels value chain as we bring Washington’s most innovative industries together to develop a local supply chain of clean and sustainable fuels for aviation. LanzaTech CEO Jennifer Holmgren and former Deputy Undersecretary of the Navy Tom Hicks are among other luminaries who will gather in Seattle for the session which is being driven by the Port of Seattle’s ambitions to green its fuel supply.
