Response to Government commitment to decarbonise transport

Responding to the Government’s publication of the policy paper ‘Decarbonising transport: setting the challenge’ in which the Government commits to publishing a consultation on net zero aviation later this year, Henrik Wareborn, CEO at Velocys, commented:

“We warmly welcome the Government’s commitment to publish a net zero aviation consultation as part of its ambitious plans to tackle emissions in the transport sector announced yesterday. Aviation is the most challenging transport sector to decarbonise because the energy density and performance of battery technologies cannot come close to matching liquid hydrocarbon fuel, particularly over longer distances. Sustainable aviation fuel will therefore play an essential role if we are to continue flying and cut emissions. Our proposed waste-to-fuels facility on the Humber Estuary will be the first of its kind in Europe and, with Government support, could be producing cleaner burning jet fuel in just four years’ time.”
