UK: Jet Zero launches Green Fuels, Green Skies, a £15 million competition to support SAF production
This competition was launched on 16 March 2021 by the Department for Transport (DfT) to support the development of the emerging UK sector on its pathway to production of SAF at scale. The Green Fuels, Green Skies competition will provide up to £15 million in grant funding to UK SAF projects during the 2021/22 financial year. Specifically, 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. The competition will have a key focus on supporting activities related to the development of First-Of-A-Kind (FOAK) commercial SAF plants in the UK, but will also be open to demonstration scale SAF projects and will allocate up to £2m in funding for projects at the feasibility stage of development across these scales. The Green Fuels, Green Skies competition is open to applications until 31 May 2021.
