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 the call for evidence on the Future Policy Framework for Biomethane Production

The RTFA has submitted a high-level response in the form of a 2 page letter.

We are supportive of a continued policy to encourage more biomethane (or renewable methane) production. This should strive to be technology neutral, follow the “polluter pays” principle, and have feedstock eligibility and GHG emissions calculations ...

HVO use in commercial fleets

Simon Lawford, from member company Crown Oil talks about using HVO.  This 9 minute video focuses on the cost differential between HVO and diesel, and compatibility issues.

Another alternative is high blend FAME / biodiesel (see a similar length video on FAME here).


About Us

  • All domestic biodiesel producers
  • All companies supplying biomethane to transport
  • Prospective SAF producers
  • HVO suppliers
  • Drop in development fuel companies (particularly strong in those looking to make fuel out of end of life tyres)
  • Biopropane suppliers and a number of other key corporates and reciprocal organisations.
