Seems they have things a little backwards as a study is yet to be done that could affect how its built and where one would think. Also since they are using land that right now produces crops which are in the food supply chain can see food prices going up due to less supply for the demand. This SAF deal is going to affect food prices quite a bit and hurt those who can least afford for it to happen. Green sounds good until it isnt.

The bulk of Manitoba's canola oil production is sold to China which used it as a blackmail lever when it claimed shipments contained some mysterious and unproven contaminants. Millions of dollars were lost over this purely political act so using the oil as a fuel within the province will provide a reliable customer, better prices and no transport costs.

So instead of producing food to feed the world farmers will be producing jet fuel for an industry that is costing more and more every year to use. Oh well the rich will still be able to jet away for their vacations in countries that need the food we could have been producing.
