Renewable Transport
Fuel Association

The RTFA is a trade body driving the uptake of better road, aviation and maritime fuels

It will take decades to transition to electrification and hydrogen across all transport sectors

Carbon emissions from transport must be reduced as a matter of urgency

These fuels are delivering valuable carbon savings today, and the companies that produce them will be the innovators and investors of the future, making fuels for those sectors of transport that cannot ultimately be electrified, such as heavy freight, aviation and marine.

We call upon Government to have greater ambition in the fight to reduce carbon emissions from transport. Time is short.

What we’ve said

RTFA responds to Call for Evidence by DfT / DESNZ / Defra on NRMM decarbonisation options

Three Government Departments published a joint Call for Evidence on the options for the decarbonisation of Non-Road Mobile Machinery (“NRMM”). This covers machines used in agriculture, construction, mining / quarrying, and machines used for materials handling in the logistics sector.

Whilst long-term there may be other technological solutions, the RTFA ...

RTFA responds to DfT’s consultation on multiple incentives

The Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation and the SAF Mandate will need to prevent fuels and chemical precursors to benefitting from multiple financial incentives.  The DfT consulted on how it should achieve that.  See the consultation document here.  The RFTA does not support fuels benefitting from multiple incentives, and favours the ...
