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.

It needs to be robust enough to push industry to consume progressively less fossil ...

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 ...
