Velocys gets planning approval for Altalto plant

A pioneering plant for the conversion of waste into aviation fuel that is set to create about 130 jobs has been given the go-ahead. A resolution to grant planning permission has been issued to Altalto Immingham by North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC)'s Planning Committee. The proposed Altalto Immingham plant would convert hundreds of thousands of tonnes per year of non-recyclable everyday household and commercial waste, otherwise destined for landfill or incineration, into cleaner burning sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The project, a collaboration between Velocys, British Airways and Shell, is expected to create 130 permanent skilled jobs, and more during construction. That's why Velocys are calling on the government to co-ordinate policy between departments to help us fund a fleet of world leading sustainable aviation fuel facilities in the UK." Cllr Philip Jackson, leader of North East Lincolnshire Council, said: "This development cements North East Lincolnshire's place at the heart of the UK's green industrial revolution, an area already renowned for its fuels production and offshore wind industry.

A formal decision notice will then be issued subject to the completion of standard legal agreements with NELC. Subject to additional funding and financial close, construction is targeted to begin in 2022, and the facility could be producing fuel from 2025. Velocys's planning application to build its waste-to-jet fuel plant has been accepted, allowing construction to begin in 2022. The sustainable fuels company said North East Lincolnshire council had approved the plan for the Altalto plant at Immingham. The site is intended to convert hundreds of thousands of tonnes of non-recyclable everyday waste into cleaner burning aviation fuel.

The council's approval follows Velocys securing £1m of funding a week earlier from British Airways and Royal Dutch Shell for the plant. IAG's BA business, Shell and Velocy's signed a deal in 2019 to develop the plant. The facility will be designed to take more than 0.5m tonnes of non-recyclable waste and turn it into sustainable fuel mainly for aviation. The fuel is intended to lead to cleaner air and a net 70% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Henrik Wareborn, Velocys's chief executive, said: "It's fantastic news that the planning committee has approved our waste-to-jet-fuel project, which will be a first for the UK.

Philip Jackson, North East Lincolnshire council's leader, said: "I look forward to seeing what this will mean in terms of real jobs for local people, both during the construction phase and when the project is operational in the longer term." Sustainable fuels technology company Velocys said resolution to grant planning permission had been given to Altalto Immingham, the UK's first commercial waste-to-jet-fuel plant. The resolution was given by North East Lincolnshire Council's planning committee. A formal decision notice would then be issued subject to the completion of standard legal agreements with the council. All statutory consultees had indicated their acceptance of the plan, Velocy's said. The proposed plant would convert hundreds of thousands of tonnes per year of non-recyclable everyday household and commercial waste, otherwise destined for landfill or incineration, into cleaner burning sustainable aviation fuel. It was a collaboration between Velocys, British Airways and Shell.

I'm not sure about aviation fuel. I'm not trying to make a political statement. What I'm saying is that aviation fuel is very expensive and it has a lot of environmental problems

I think it is a good thing because it gives us an opportunity to get back to the roots of aviation. I think the Russians like it. It's good for them to have the right kind of fuel, because the Russians have to carry more fuel than they would if the world was a little bit more efficient. I think the Chinese are very interested in it. They are very serious about it

"I think it's a little bit more difficult than other types of fuels, because most aviation fuel is jet fuel so you're really trying to cram as much fuel in as possible. It's a little bit more difficult to get the reductions in the efficiency over time." He said it would be difficult to get the reductions in fuel efficiency without the use of a different technology and therefore a different fuel

Flight Fuel Consumption The fuel consumption of general aviation aircraft is typically measured in gallons per hour (GPH). This is a measure of the amount of fuel required to accelerate the aircraft from 0 mph to 100 mph. A GPH is also a measure of the speed of the aircraft as it approaches 100 mph. The fuel consumption of most other types of aircraft is typically measured in gallons per hour (GPH)

The first time I attended the annual Burning Man Festival I was 12 years old, and had no idea what to expect. I was in a tent with a lot of other kids, but most were not quite sure what to expect. For some, it would be a chance to experience a desert festival unlike any other, but for me it was the first time I had ever set foot on a hot desert planet

The original logo of the AHDF was created in 1935 by the Chief of the German General Staff, Georg I von Richthofen, and was designed as a concise statement of German intentions in the Middle East to defend against the neighboring Ottoman Empire. The acronym AHDF (Al-Haq für die Krieg) came from the German word "Al" meaning "for the whole" and the "für" meaning "for the army

"I am not sure that aviation fuel prices are too high. The price of aviation fuel is very high. The government has to go to the customers and ask for their support. I think they have to go to the airlines and ask for their support. They have to make sure, as per the rules, that they do not do any rush on the fuel. "I think they have to do that
