British Airways Contracts with Velocys to Develop Waste-based Alternative Jet Fuel Facilities

19 September 2017 - British Airways has partnered with Velocys, a renewable fuels company, to design a series of municipal solid waste (MSW) to jet fuel facilities in order to fulfill their commitment to reduce net emissions by 50 percent by 2050. The first planned facility will produce enough fuel for all their 787 flights from London to San Jose, CA and New Orleans, LA for an entire year. The recent changes to the Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation (RTFO) by the Department of Transport that enabled sustainable alternative jet fuel to claim credits under the incentive scheme is expected to provide long-term support for the market.
