Sustainable jet fuel from rubbish - how does that work? @ Blewbury Clubhouse | Blewbury | England | United Kingdom

A talk by Dr. Neville Hargreaves
Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of aviation is tougher than for any other form of transport – and emissions are growing fast. Neville is working with British Airways and others on an exciting project to build the UK’s first commercial sustainable jet-fuel plant. This will convert household waste into jet fuel – reducing greenhouse gases and converting hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste that would otherwise be incinerated or put into landfill. He will describe how the process works, what it can do for the environment present and future, and the many practical challenges of bringing a really big industrial project to fruition.
Tickets £4 from Blewbury Post Office, or on the door (if not sold out); drinks available from the bar. NOTE: Bohams Road is at the western end of Blewbury, off the A417. On entering the road, Clubhouse is first right turn. Do NOT go up the long hill!
