June, 2021:  Renewable Diesel and Sustainable Aviation Webinar

This month will feature Renewable Diesel & SAF 2030 Author and Emerging Markets Online President Will Thurmond presenting at the Biofuels Digest‘s weekly interactive networking program DigestConnect. 

Renewable Diesel & SAF 2030 Author Will Thurmond speaks on Biofuels Digest Connect

On DigestConnect we’re joined by Will Thurmond, author of Renewable Diesel & Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) 2030 highlighting new development opportunities for aviation fuels, feedstock availability, future options for using non-FOG based feedstocks from low-carbon low-cost waste sources (from trees, municipal solid waste, agricultural waste, food waste, farm waste); and advanced technologies for turning bio-crude, and syncrude into renewable diesel and SAF (sustainable aviation) fuels.

There’s nothing hotter right now than renewable diesel and SAF – what are the pathways, projects, who are the players, what are the business models, are there alternative feedstocks?
