British Airways joins the “Leaders of Sustainable Biofuels”initiative.
The Chief Executive Officers of seven leading European companies investing in advanced biofuels have launched in Brussels a new industry led initiative to speed up the deployment of advanced sustainable biofuels in Europe.
The “Leaders of Sustainable Biofuels” initiative is open to:
- Technology developers of 2nd generation and advanced biofuels (2AGB) who have already been investing in large scale demonstration scale facilities;
- Investors in plants (demo or flagship) of 2nd generation and advanced biofuels.
The initial members are Chemtex, British Airways, BTG, Chemrec, Clariant, DONG Energy and UPM-Kymmene. They are committed in developing and investing in innovative advanced and environmentally sound 2nd generation and advanced biofuels industrial systems bringing the technologies into commercial deployment on a global scale.
The seven partners have defined a common strategy based on four key areas: accelerating research and innovation into emerging biofuel technologies, developing worldwide-accepted sustainability certification, establishing funding structures for sustainable biofuels projects and promoting the benefits of 2GAB.
British Airways is currently engaged with Solena Fuels Corporation in the development of a waste-to-liquid fuel facility to supply London Airport with 50 kt of sustainable low carbon fuel per year.
