Velocys to participate in 2022 Barclays CEO Energy-Power Conference, US
8 Sep 2022
Velocys plc (VLS.L), the sustainable fuels technology company, announces that CEO Henrik Wareborn, will today be attending the 2022 Barclays CEO Energy-Power Conference in New York. He will be participating as a panellist on Sustainable Aviation Fuel (“SAF”) with Gerard Ostheimer, Co-Manager of the Clean Energy Ministerial Biofuture Campaign, a global forum to promote policies and programmes that advance clean energy technology.
The panel will be hosted by Will Thompson, Senior Research Analyst, Industrials and Energy sectors, Barclay’s Sustainable and Thematic Research Team, who recently published a report on the emerging need for SAF to decarbonise the hard-to-abate aviation industry.
Velocys’ IP-protected technology utilises abundant waste feedstocks, which includes forestry, residential and commercial, to enable the production of ultra-low carbon intensity synthetic aviation fuel. In November 2021, Velocys signed agreements for 100% of the SAF output expected from the Bayou Fuels facility with Southwest Airlines (a 15-year offtake agreement) and IAG/British Airways (MOU for a 10-year offtake agreement). Bayou Fuels is a planned cellulosic biofuels plant enabling the production of carbon negative fuel through the use of biogenic feedstock, renewable power, and carbon sequestration. The biorefinery will convert 3,000 tons/day of woody biomass forestry residues into 36 million gallons/year (nameplate) of renewable transportation fuels, predominantly SAF, with a negative carbon intensity.
The Barclays CEO Energy-Power Conference is one of the world’s premier equity research conferences, attended by many of the world’s leading energy companies and over 1,000 investors.
