Sustainable Jet Fuel Demand May Add Value to Montana Ag

Calumet Specialty Products recently invested $90 million in its Great Falls refinery to process biodiesel and sustainable aviation fuel, or SAF. In doing so, it created a market that Montana farm producers could fill — oil seed crops — and created another opportunity for investment in the crushing and rendering of that oil seed and tallow. Any takers? The market for SAF is expected to grow dramatically worldwide.

Montana Ag Director Christi Clark learns more about this in a Sept. 18 visit to the Calumet refinery with Bruce Fleming, Executive Vice President of Calumet Specialty Products. Click on the podcast to hear them both talk about this opportunity ahead of that tour on Voices of Montana.
