Manchester to pioneer sustainable air fuel

[ October 29, 2021   //   ]

Manchester Airport will become the first in the UK to have a direct feed of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) with the signing of a partnership between owner Manchester Airports Group (MAG) and Fulcrum BioEnergy. MAG – which owns Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands airports – has signed a memorandum of understanding with Fulcrum to support the development and delivery of SAF produced at a new waste to fuels biorefinery in Stanlow, Cheshire. SAF will be supplied to Manchester Airport through an existing pipeline.

Fulcrum is a pioneer in the conversion of non-recyclable residual wastes into sustainable fuels. The new biorefinery, Fulcrum NorthPoint, is part of wider plans to establish the North West as the leading producer of SAF in the UK.
