Velocys profiled in Biofuels International

In an op-ed feature in Biofuels International titled “Full Velocys-ity”, Dr Neville Hargreaves, Velocys’ VP Waste to Fuels, gives a timely update on the work the company is undertaking in the UK.

The piece notes the viability of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) as a route to decarbonisation of the aviation sector. He also describes the development of Velocys’ UK flagship project, Altalto Immingham. This planned plant will enable the production of ‘drop-in’ fuels that require no changes to aircraft or airport infrastructure and result in a 70% reduction in lifecycle carbon emissions.

The importance of the UK Government’s Jet Zero Council is also discussed. It has created a “shared sense of ambition” that is “hugely important and will inform both government policy and business strategy ahead.”

Dr Hargreaves concludes that “life-cycle net zero aviation is absolutely realistic and Velocys represents the here-and-now solution of making it a reality”. With increasing momentum from government and industry alike in their support for SAF as a means of achieving Net Zero, Velocys remains at the forefront of this fast-developing industry. Altalto is expected to be the UK and Europe’s first waste-to-jet-fuel facility.
