Jet and lorry fuels made from rubbish to receive UK funding
Department for Transport offers £22m to projects developing waste-based fuels for vehicles too heavy to use electric power
Airline passengers could fly to their destinations on jets fuelled by industrial waste or the contents of people’s dustbins if a government scheme succeeds in creating a new green energy source.
The Department for Transport (DfT) is offering £22m of funding for projects to develop low-carbon, waste-based fuels for planes and lorries. About 70 groups want to bid for funding.
