Ricardo, a world-class environmental engineering and strategic consultancy, is jointly managing the Department for Transport’s £15 million competition for Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) projects.
The Green Fuels, Green Skies contest, announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as part of his Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution in November last year, was launched on 16 March 2021.
Its aim is to support the development of the emerging UK sector on its pathway to production of SAF at scale.
It will provide up to £15 million in grant funding to UK SAF projects during the 2021/22 financial year. It will look to support the early-stage development of UK SAF plants, referred to as Front End Engineering Design (FEED), Pre-FEED, and Feasibility Study stages of a project’s development life cycle.
