UK’s first waste-to-jet-fuel plant gets nod from North East Lincolnshire Council's Planning Committee
The UK’s first commercial waste-to-jet-fuel plant is a step closer following a resolution to grant planning permission to Altalto Immingham by North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC)’s Planning Committee.
A formal decision notice will be issued subject to standard legal agreements with NELC. All consultees have indicated their acceptance of the plan.
“This development cements North East Lincolnshire’s place at the heart of the UK’s green industrial revolution, an area already renowned for its fuels production and offshore wind industry,” said Cllr Philip Jackson, Leader, NELC. “For such a high-profile project to choose North East Lincolnshire just shows how competitive we are for the investment market.”
The proposed Altalto Immingham plant is to convert hundreds of thousands of tonnes per year of non-recyclable everyday household and commercial waste, otherwise destined for landfill or incineration, into sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
The project, a collaboration between Velocys, British Airways and Shell, is expected to create 130 permanent skilled jobs and many more during construction.
