£500m BA and Shell-backed green jet fuel refinery cleared for take-off

21st May 2020

Planners have cleared a green jet fuel refinery for take off on the South Humber Bank.

Final checks on a raft of conditions have been delegated to officers at North East Lincolnshire Council, as the British Airways and Shell-backed Velocys development - promising investment of up to £500 million - was today given the go-ahead.

Between 50 and 100 full-time jobs will be created in a European first, with hundreds more in construction, while providing a huge boost to the contracting community. It is also scalable, with potential to blend, mix and store refuse-derived fuel alongside the existing Humber Bank facilities.
