Velocys shortlisted for Green Fuels, Green Skies competition

Velocys is pleased to have been shortlisted for the Government’s Green Fuels, Green Skies (GFGS) competition, aimed at supporting the UK’s emerging Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) sector.

The competition follows sustainable aviation commitments laid out in the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution. Its key objective is to support the UK SAF sector in deploying innovative SAF production technologies at commercial scale that are capable of reducing UK aviation emissions.

Velocys’ Altalto waste-to-fuels project, which will take over 600,000 tonnes per year of household and commercial waste and convert it into cleaner burning SAF, is now being considered for a share of £15 million funding. This follows the company’s success in securing funding as part of the Government’s Future Fuels for Flight and Freight Competition (F4C) last year for the same project. Altalto will be the UK’s first commercial scale waste-to-jet-fuel facility when operational by the middle of the decade.

Announcement of competition winners is expected later in the Summer.
