Renewable Transport
Fuel Association

The RTFA is a trade body driving representing the interests of the UK’s renewable and low carbon fuel producers and promoting 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 DfT request for feedback on RTFO Guidance

The RTFA has responded to the DfT’s request for feedback on an updated version of the RTFO guidance, which proposes to include guidance on Recycled Carbon Fuels (“RCFs”) from July 2024.

The response may be viewed here.


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 ...

About Us
