British Airways consortium submits plans for waste to jet fuel plant

A group of FTSE 100 companies, including British Airways and Shell, has submitted a planning application to build a first-of-a-kind waste to jet fuel plant near the Humber estuary.

Altalto Immingham Limited submitted the application earlier this month to North East Lincolnshire Council to build the waste to jet fuel plant on a 35.9-hectare greenfield site between Immingham and Grimsby, which has been earmarked for industrial development within the council’s local plan.

The plant is intended to convert 600,000 tonnes of domestic waste into 60 million litres of jet and road fuel each year, leading to an estimated net CO2 saving of over 80,000 tonnes a year, the group said.
