Earlier today, the Government’s Jet Zero Council launched a new £15 million competition to support the development of cutting-edge facilities capable of turning everyday waste into jet fuel.

ADS Chief Executive Paul Everitt said: 

“The UK aerospace industry is putting in place an ambitious action plan to achieve net zero aviation by developing radical new technologies and sustainable aviation fuels.

”Achieving this goal will require Government and industry to work closely together, including through the work of the Jet Zero Council.  

“Today’s investment in sustainable aviation fuels is welcome. We hope to see long-term investment continued and raised to make sure the UK plays the greatest possible role in delivering the green aviation of the future.”
