Exclusive: BA’s Biofuels Plant Set for Take-Off before the End of the Year
by Will Nichols (Business Green) Preferred site has been chosen for London facility set to generate two per cent of BA’s fuel from waste
BA is set to begin initial construction on a planned biofuel-from-waste plant before the end of the year and will look to build several facilities in the UK should the technology prove successful.
Jonanthon Counsell, head of environment at BA, told BusinessGreen in an interview that the airline had chosen a preferred site for the plant in London, after first announcing the project alongside US biofuel company Solena back in 2010.
“We’re getting close to having all the pieces in the jigsaw coming together… [and] should be making an announcement before the end of the year,” he said.
