Request for Information Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Grand Challenge: Building Supply Chains. The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders on issues related to a key action area of the SAF Grand Challenge Roadmap, Building Supply Chains. The “Building Supply Chains” action area encompasses feedstock production, collection, and distribution to SAF production facilities; conversion of feedstock to fuel; and transport of finished fuel to the infrastructure required to fuel aircraft. Because current fuel certifications require SAF to be blended with conventional fuels, the SAF supply chain also requires coordination with conventional jet fuel producers. Because SAF production is a nascent industry, SAF supply chains are immature, may be regionally unique, and will likely require significant resources and investment to establish. This action area will support SAF production expansion through R&D transitions from pilot- to large-scale, demonstration projects to validate supply chain logistics and business models, and public–private partnerships and collaboration with regional, state, and local stakeholders.
