Velocys on BBC Radio Lincolnshire

Velocys VP Waste to Fuels, Neville Hargreaves, was interviewed on the BBC Radio Lincolnshire breakfast programme who were running a theme related to COP26 and the local area. He spoke to host Sean Dunderdale on the proposed Altalto project that will turn municipal solid waste into sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at a biorefinery plant in North East Lincolnshire. The proposed plant will utilise Velocys technology to enable the production of SAF. He gave an update on progress with planning permission obtained and much of the design and engineering work completed. He noted that further clarity on policy from the UK Government would be a next step, which he hoped would be similar to the support already given to the renewable electricity industry to share the costs of new technology fairly. He emphasised the recent sustainable aviation fuel mandate was a good start.

Neville Hargreaves noted that Lincolnshire is an ideal location for the proposed plant with the presence of skilled people and advanced infrastructure, particularly the forthcoming East Coast carbon capture & storage pipeline that could give the sustainable aviation fuel produced a negative carbon intensity. With the Humber becoming the energy estuary of the UK, basing Altalto there was an ideal fit. “We’ve really felt welcome there”, he said.Audio Player
