Today, a clean alternative fuel consortium of Carbon Neutral Fuels, io consulting, and Mission Zero Technologies has been awarded £1.38 million from the UK Department for Transport’s Advanced Fuels Fund competition for their “Advancing Sustainable Aviation via Power-to-Liquid and Direct Air Capture” project.
This project will conduct feasibility studies for a UK-based Power-to-Liquid e-fuels demonstration facility capable of producing 750,000 litres/year of Jet A-1 compatible sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Sophie Zienkiewicz, co-founder of Carbon Neutral Fuels, said:
“This is a huge milestone that demonstrates the UK Government’s commitment to tackling climate change through innovation in advanced technologies.
We’re incredibly excited to be working with our partners to deliver on this project and to showcase our modular and scalable approach to decarbonising aviation.”
io will conduct the Feasibility, pre FEED and FEED studies, and Mission Zero Technologies will collaborate on integrating their Direct Air Capture technology.
Nicholas Chadwick, CEO of Mission Zero Technologies, stated:
“This is an important moment for UK SAF production. Direct air capture offers a truly scalable and location-agnostic sustainable carbon source; the sooner we demonstrate its value at scale, the sooner the UK’s SAF industry can take flight.”
