The Independent highlights Velocys

Following the announcement by international global airline alliance Oneworld that it is committing to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, Velocys has been highlighted as part of a report in The Independent on the sector pledge.

The 13 Oneworld member airlines will develop their individual approaches to reach the target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, through initiatives including investments in sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). The group includes IAG, parent company of British Airways, with whom Velocys is developing Altalto – the UK’s first waste-to-jet-fuel facility in North East Lincolnshire.

The Independent report noted: “BA has invested heavily in biofuel, partnering with Royal Dutch Shell and sustainable fuels technology company Velocys to build Europe’s first plant converting commercial waste into jet fuel.”

The announcement represents the latest example of the aviation industry and business more widely recognising the important role sustainable aviation fuels, such as those enabled through Velocys’ technology, will play in the decarbonisation of the aviation sector by 2050.
