Velocys says Yorkshire and Humber could lead the way to greener aviation
A recent article in The Yorkshire Post by Velocys’ VP Waste to Fuels, Dr Neville Hargreaves, said that the Yorkshire and the Humber region – the location of our planned Altalto waste-to-jet-fuel facility – could play an important role in a new Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) industry, cutting carbon and creating jobs in the region.
With Altalto becoming the UK’s first sustainable aviation fuel facility, the Humber can establish itself as the global hub for the greener fuelling of air travel. Dr Hargreaves argues that with further support from Government and continued leadership from political leaders in the Humber, the region could capture a significant portion of the economic benefits created by the developing industry.
Velocys’ piece follows an earlier Yorkshire Post article by Kwasi Kwarteng MP, Minister for Business, Energy and Clean Growth, which said the Humber region will power the green energy revolution. The Minister outlined how as an established renewable and industrial heartland, the Humber will act as the backbone for our green transition and an example to the many other industrial centres across the UK that they can go green.
The Minister’s support for the Humber and its industrial skill and heritage echoes Velocys’ decision to locate our proposed facility in the region.
