Waste-to-jet fuel plant highlights the opportunities and limitations of alternative fuels

British Airways this week announced plans for their pilot facility, in partnership with Solena Fuels and known as the ‘Green Sky project’, which converts landfill waste into alternative fuels for aviation, to be built in Thurrock, Essex. The company estimates that the plant could produce 50,000 tonnes of aviation fuel every year from waste earmarked for landfill.
