UK SMEs finalists in global award for SAF circular economy project

October 5, 2021 |

In the UK, trailblazing circular economy project to advance the development of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) has secured a finalist place at the global Energy Institute 2021 Awards.

HSSMI is working in partnership with project leaders, Wilson Bio-Chemical Ltd on Waste-to-Wings, a project to future-proof and scale up the production of greener jet fuel by using circular economy practices and aerospace industry derived waste as the primary feedstock to manufacture sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

The Waste-to-Wings SAF project has impressed the judging panel of the Energy Institute Awards and secured Wilson Bio-Chemical (WBC) a nomination in the Low Carbon category. Waste-to-Wings explores how SAF can be produced from bioethanol, produced from micro-organisms found in Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), e.g., the contents of the office rubbish bag, average canteen waste bin, or commercial skips.

HSSMI’s Circular Economy Team has collaborated with WBC to develop the decarbonization solution, working across the aerospace supply chain to map and build a circular economy framework for the project. Specifically, engaging with waste producers within the entire downstream supply chain, forging links with airports, airlines, air freight forwarders and lower-tier stakeholders.
