Waste to liquid fuels webinar

Waste to fuels technology is an exciting growth area for those involved in waste to energy sector. Our team of experts has been supporting waste to fuel projects for several years and in the past year alone we have seen a surge in interest in this area.

Investors, facility operators and waste management companies are beginning to turn their attention to this rapidly developing technology, keen to take advantage of new opportunities that are opening up. This increased interest has been driven by a number of key factors: 

  • Government investment through the Future Fuels for Flight and Freight Competition (F4C) which provides up to £20m in funding. 
  • New bio-fuel targets that come into force this year which will double the use of renewable fuels within the transport sector by 2032. 
  • The introduction of a development fuel sub-target within the RTFO which will provide enhanced support for advanced transport fuels.
