Velocys, the sustainable fuels technology company, has announced it has completed the manufacturing and delivery of four reactors to Red Rock Biofuels (RRB).
RRB has a further option to purchase an additional two reactors by the end of 2020.
RRB was founded in 2011 and is a producer of drop-in, renewable, low-carbon jet and diesel fuels.
Henrik Wareborn, Velocys CEO, said: “We are very pleased to have completed the reactor order for Red Rock’s facility in Oregon, US, which will produce low carbon sustainable fuels. Our reactor supply chain has now been tested and has proven our capability to deliver our technology to our global clients.
“Velocys has the technology, demonstrated at commercial scale, to enable the production of sustainable fuels. This fuel is essential for the hard to decarbonise transportation sector and will help to meet net zero emissions as required by many Governments.”
Velocys also recently attended the inaugural meeting of the Government’s newly formed Jet Zero Council, of which the company has been confirmed as a member.
The Jet Zero Council will provide advice on the Government’s ambitions for clean aviation. A dynamic government and industry partnership, the council will focus on developing UK capabilities to deliver net zero emission commercial flight through a series of measures.
Velocys has also partnered with British Airways and Shell to propose commercial production of sustainable aviation fuel from waste at the new facility in Immingham. This will be the first such commercial-scale project in Europe.
