GreenSky London

Project Objective: 

Produce sustainable avaiation fuel at commercial scale

Initiative Description: 

The Project will develop a biofuel plant in London, which will convert London municipal waste into aviation biofuels for use in BA flights operating out of London City Airport.  

The plant will use approximately 500,000 tones of municipal waste each year, converting it to approximately 16 million gallons of aviation fuel using Solena’s Fischer Tropsch processes.  The facility will also include a 40MW biomass power station, with the electricity being used for the plant, as well as to provide electricity back into the grid.  Bionaptha will also be produced as a by-product.  

The biofuels are expected to have a 90% reduction on carbon emissions compared to regular Jet A-1.
