Velocys Welcomes US Government SAF Policy Support

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on London South East.

This is the first paragraph.

Velocys plc – Oxford, England-based fuels technology company – Welcomes US government announcement last week of a set of comprehensive new policy actions in support for Sustainable Aviation Fuel production in the US. Notes Velocys is cited in a White House briefing paper setting out the Biden administration’s plans to incentivise commercial scale supply of SAF in the US to meet decarbonisation objectives while stimulating economic growth.

I hope that being cited by the White House is a good thing.

I do think though, that Velocys have the technology, that could help us to keep flying until hydrogen-powered aircraft are developed.

  1. Yesterday British Airways operated its first flight using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
    The fuel was supplied by a BP subsidiary. BP have a tie up with two partners, one called Neste, a Finnish company, the other California’s Fulcrum BioEnergy. There see to be so many small and medium companies bidding to take a share of the burgeoning “alternative fuels” market.

    • I feel your last statement is true and it is because there is some damn good catalyst research going on in British, US and Australian Universities to name three countries of many.

      In the 1970s, I modelled the dynamics of a reaction involving a catalyst and I came to the conclusion that improving catalysts would be a very good thing for the reaction, I was looking at.

      When I see a world-class University is involved in catalyst research with these companies, I investigate and prepare to get my credit card out, if I find it is needed.
