UK ANNOUNCES FUNDING FOR PROJECTS TO DEVELOP WASTE-BASED AVIATION FUEL
Planes could take off from British airports using fuels made from rubbish that gets sent to landfill, under a new scheme by the UK government.
As part of plans to promote clean alternative fuels, the UK government is offering funding for projects in the UK to develop low carbon waste-based fuels for planes and lorries, with matching funding from industry.
The government claims that it is already planning to revolutionise the motor industry with ultra-low emission electric cars, and now plans "going further and investing in a new generation of fuels" which will power aircraft and lorries.
Indeed, it notes that it has already had interest from more than 70 groups in bidding for the funding.
The Future Fuels for Flight and Freight competition is part of the UK government’s Modern Industrial Strategy, which sets out to support evolving industries with the potential to boost the economy.
The government claims that it is committed to cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050, and recognises that transport emissions must be slashed if the UK is meet that target.
