British Airways First-of-Its-Kind Waste to Jet Fuel Project Finds Technology Provider
(National Non-Food Crops Center) Europe’s first waste to jet fuel production plant came a step closer to construction this week as UK-based Oxford Catalysts were selected as the sole technology suppliers to the joint British Airways and Solena GreenSky project.
British Airways and US bioenergy group Solena have been working together since 2009, in order to build europe’s first sustainable jet fuel production plant, GreenSky London.
Now, after a formal evaluation of the available technologies, Oxford Catalysts have been selected as the sole supplier of Fischer-Tropsch (FT) technology for the project.
Solena has also entered into an understanding with the group for the supply of FT units to all its future biomass to liquids projects, including GreenSky California, Rome and Stockholm.
The decision is a major coup for Oxford Catalysts, who were chosen because their technology offered modular sizing and the advantages of high-efficiency, fixed bed reactors. READ MORE
