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.

Tinkering with the levy won’t get operators to switch unless they have a satisfactory and affordable alternative, ...
