UK Prime Minister briefed on alfanar sustainable energy’s latest projects
As part of his recent official visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and during his visit to the Sabic Development Centre in Riyadh, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited the stand of alfanar where company officials briefed him and provided an outline of their project in Teesside, North East of the UK, where the company is investing one billion UK Pounds in the ‘Lighthouse Green Fuel’ project to produce sustainable aviation fuel from waste.
The project, which is the first of its kind in the UK, produces more than 180mn litres of sustainable aviation fuel annually in the United Kingdom. This amount of sustainable aviation fuel is sufficient to operate 15,000 flights per year, reducing harmful carbon emissions from conventional fuels by more than 700,000 tons annually. The project is part of alfanar’s ongoing Green Energy Development Programme in different parts of the world, including Spain, India, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
