Project Speedbird will produce 102 million litres of SAF per year from sustainably sourced agricultural and wood waste.

British Airways, LanzaJet and Nova Pangaea Technologies have struck an agreement to accelerate Project SpeedBird, which aims to develop cost-effective sustainable aviation fuel (Saf) for commercial use in the UK.

Created last year by the three companies, Project Speedbird targets annual production of 102 million litres of SAF from sustainably sourced agricultural and wood waste.

It received a grant of around £500,000 from the Department for Transport’s (DFT) Green Fuels, Green Skies competition to fund the initial feasibility study for early-stage project development.

An application has now been submitted for the DfT’s Advanced Fuels Fund grant for further funding to support continued development of the project.
