The Sustainable Aviation Fuels Northwest (SAFN) is the first stakeholder effort to review the challenges surrounding the production of sustainable aviation fuels and to develop a regional solution.

The initiative was launched in July 2010 by Boeing, Alaska Airlines, the Ports of Portland, Seattle and Spokane– and Washington State University. Climate Solutions, a Northwest clean-energy nonprofit, managed the stakeholder process that included a wide range of groups across aviation, biofuels production, environmental advocacy, agriculture, forestry, federal and state government agencies, academic research and technical consultancies.  Stoel Rives was proud to be a participant in the process and to provide specific input regarding incentives, and the Renewable Fuel Standard.
