Scaling Sustainable Aviation Fuel: Recommendations to Federal Policy Makers from Washington State

The aviation industry currently accounts for 2 percent of global carbon emissions, the vast majority of which is due to the use of fossil jet fuel. As air travel grows at a projected rate of 3 to 4 percent per year, the aviation industry will continue its reliance on energy dense liquid fuels with few […]

Advanced Nuclear Process Heat for Industrial Decarbonization

Key Takeaways Nuclear power is one of the few technologies that can economically and technologically meet the thermal needs of industrial process heat applications up to 950 degrees C (1,742 degrees F). Retrofitting facilities (e.g., manufacturing, universities, hospitals) currently utilizing natural gas-fired combined heat and power systems would reduce U.S. annual carbon dioxide emissions by […]

Recent electric vehicle battery and recycling investments in Ohio build on the state’s existing competencies throughout the automotive and scrap recycling supply chain, […]

U.S. State Carbon Pricing Policies

Compared to command-and-control regulations, carbon pricing is a market-based mechanism that creates financial incentives to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Twelve states that are home to over a quarter of the U.S. population and account for a third of U.S. GDP have active carbon-pricing programs and are successfully reducing emissions. Those states are California, Washington, […]
