Velocys to join influential industry groups
8 Sep 2020
Velocys has been invited to join boards of the Renewable Transport Fuel Association and the Biotechnology Innovation Organisation.
Velocys has been invited to join the board of the newly formed Renewable Transport Fuel Association (RTFA). Made up of producers and suppliers of greener transport fuels, the group will work to support rapid action to decarbonise transport through the uptake of low carbon fuels such as bioethanol, biomethane, biodiesel and biopropene.
Velocys Vice President Waste to Fuels, Dr Neville Hargreaves (above right), will represent Velocys on the board of the RTFA, which will initially be made up of 13 members including Associated British Foods, ABSL, Alco, Argent Energy, Calor, CNG Fuels, Ensus UK, Gasrec, Greenergy, Nova Pangea and Olleco.
This follows recent news that Velocys CEO Henrik Wareborn (above left) has joined one of the influential boards of the Biotechnology Innovation Organisation (BIO). BIO is the world’s largest trade association representing biotechnology companies, academic institutions, state biotechnology centres and related organisations across the globe. Henrik Wareborn will sit on the Industrial & Environmental Section Governing Board.
Both appointments will bring Velocys’ industry expertise to bear on major issues affecting the renewable fuels and biotechnology industries, demonstrating the leading role Velocys will play in the growth of sustainable fuels.
