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

DfT’s call for ideas on for the UK’s Transport Decarbonisation Plan, August 2020

We welcome the Government’s Zero Carbon targets, but warn that it may be decades before technology advances to the point where electric batteries, green hydrogen or catenary systems are economic and practical. We argue sustainable renewable fuels can make a material difference to UK carbon emissions right now and set ...

25th August 2020 – RTFA launch

A new trade body for sustainable renewable transport fuels

  • Renewable Transport Fuel Association (RTFA) launched to help achieve rapid action to decarbonise transport through use of sustainable renewable and recycled carbon fuels
  • UK needs rapid action within transport sector to help achieve net zero emissions by 2050 -the UK ...
