12 Oct 2020
Velocys took part in the 9th World Waste to Energy and Resources Summit, exploring advances in project development, finance and technology in waste to energy and resources markets globally.
Dr Neville Hargreaves, Velocys Vice President Waste to Fuels, hosted a roundtable with industry colleagues on the topic of: ‘Is now the right time to invest in more environmentally beneficial solutions for waste such as conversion into fuels and chemicals’, as well as taking part in a panel discussion on the topic of: ‘Transport Fuels: Could this be the most valuable resource to me produced from waste?’
The panel, on which fellow speakers included Rachel Solomon Williams from the Department for Transport, concurred that aviation is a natural option for residual waste through the waste-to-jet-fuel process, as enabled by Velocys’ technology. There was agreement that the industry has the solutions and market role out would be the next logical step.
Velocys’ involvement in the conference is demonstrative of the direction of travel the energy from waste industry is moving in, and the prominent role that waste-to-jet-fuel can play ahead.
