Planning Committee Approves First Sustainable Aviation Fuel Plant in U.K.

June 17, 2020 — Altalto Immingham, which will be the UK’s first commercial waste-to-jet-fuel plant, has been granted planning permission from North-East Lincolnshire Council’s Planning Committee. The project to build the plant will be a partnership between Velocys, British Airways, and Shell. The plant will convert hundreds of thousands of tonnes per year of non-recyclable household and commercial waste into sustainable aviation fuel. The technology for the fuel will be provided by Velocys, and the expected greenhouse savings will be around 70% for each tonne of conventional jet fuel it replaces.
