Welcome to the RTFA

Renewable Transport
Fuel Association

We are the UK’s leading trade association driving the uptake of sustainable renewable and low carbon fuels – we are the voice of the UK’s renewable liquid and gaseous fuel producers and suppliers.
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

A Green Recovery with Biomethane

The Gas Vehicle Network is running a campaign to demonstrate the benefits of Gas HGVs.

Its report “A Green Recovery- Delivering a rapid & cost-effective CO₂ reduction for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs)” explains the benefits and fleet operators can join the call for DfT to recognise the role gas HGVS can play in its forthcoming Transport Decarbonisation Plan, by signing up to the GVN’s campaign.

Gaynor Hartnell, Chief Executive of the RTFA, commented

“Running on biomethane is one of the options available to fleet operators looking to reduce their carbon footprint, and the uptake of gas-fueled trucks is growing rapidly.  Other here-and-now options are higher blends of biodiesel, and drop in fuels such as HVO.  Mass market zero carbon tailpipe solutions are some decades away”.

18th Nov 2020 – RTFA comments on the Prime Minister’s 10 point plan

In response to the Prime Minister’s article in the Financial Times: 18 November 2020

The RTFA said the PM’s announcement is welcome, but Boris could be bolder. If his Government showed the same ambition for decarbonising fuels, as it does for electrification, there would be more immediate impact.
