Velocys’ technology profiled on BBC Radio 4 PM programme

Velocys spoke about  the company’s sustainable fuels technology on BBC Radio 4’s news and current affairs programme, PM.

Dr Neville Hargreaves, VP Waste to Fuels,  described the waste-to-jet-fuel process and stressed the ‘here and now’ status of our technology. The jet fuel produced would reduce carbon emissions by 70 percent, compared with conventional jet fuel , and that could be increased to 100 percent with the availability of carbon capture and storage in the UK.

In the programme, presenter Evan Davis suggested Velocys’ concept of using household waste to produce sustainable fuel was a ‘double win’. Chris Stark, Chief Executive at the Committee on Climate Change, said that given the difficulty of replacing fossil fuels in aviation, waste-to-jet-fuels represented a ‘sensible strategy’ for decarbonisation.

You can listen to the full programme on BBC Sounds. Velocys’ segment can be found at 17:39.
