UK Government funding boost for low carbon fuels development

Seven industry-led projects will receive a share of £2 million to develop proposals for advanced fuel production plants, as part of the UK’s drive to reduce carbon emissions in aviation and heavy goods vehicles. The awards are Stage One of the UK Department for Transport’s ‘Fuels for Flight and Freight Competition’ (F4C), which E4tech co-manages together with Ricardo.

For details about the F4C and the successful Stage One applicants, see the UK Department for Transport’s announcement and the F4C website. These seven projects will also be invited to apply for a share of a further £20 million of Stage Two funding to help with plant construction, with the successful applicants announced in early 2019.
