Sustainable fuels as a route to Net Zero

Velocys’ technology enables sustainable fuels made from waste materials for aviation and heavy goods transport to help achieve net zero emissions and improve air quality.

Combining transformative technology, operational expertise and a partnership approach, we are working on commercial projects, today, that deliver the fuels of tomorrow.

Waste to fuels

We design, develop and license our Fischer-Tropsch technology for the commercial production of sustainable fuels from household, commercial and forestry waste.


Practical solutions

Sustainable aviation fuels are 'drop-in' fuels. They require no aircraft engine modification or change of airport infrastructure.

Towards net zero

Creating sustainable fuels for the hard-to-decarbonise aviation and heavy-duty transport sectors. We can even make fuels with negative net greenhouse gas emissions when we use carbon capture and storage.

Here and now technology

Turnkey solutions for fuel producers to meet net zero carbon targets and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and exhaust pollutants.


The future: e-fuels

As well as from solid wastes, our technology also enables the production of sustainable fuels from renewable power and CO2 streams (atmospheric and industry) – thus turning renewable power into liquid transport fuels for use in today’s planes and trucks.

A fuel supply based entirely on sustainable feedstocks

Drawing on 18 years of research and development

Demonstrated technology at commercial scale

No landfill or waste contaminating the environment

An aviation industry with net zero emissions

Working with government and industry to make it all happen
