Velocys interviewed as part of feature on Jet Zero

Velocys has been featured in The Sunday Telegraph as an example of here and now sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) technology, which could catalyse the Government’s Jet Zero plans and target of green flights within a generation.

In the piece, ‘Johnson fires up the engines for a Jet Zero future’ (online version titled: ‘Can a green revolution really save Britain’s crisis-stricken aerospace industry?’), Velocys’ waste-to-jet-fuel process is discussed, along with the need for appropriate policy support, and the fact that our technology could enable commercial scale SAF production by the middle of the decade.

The Telegraph’s Industry Editor Alan Tovey writes, “Wareborn remains convinced sustainable fuels are the future of aviation with low-carbon flight likely to depend on biofuels.”

The piece concludes with Velocys’ CEO Henrik Wareborn commenting, “Burning oil is a bad thing. It needs to be left in the ground … Raising the capital to build the plants isn’t difficult if there is the policy support to decarbonise transport.”’
