Hey, it’s wonderful to see British Airways getting a biodiesel fuel policy plan together in such a large and positive way and helping the environment.
I have heard that this fantastic development comes with benefits of renewable energy by building a ‘Jet Fuel Plant’ in East London which will in fact bring new employment to around 1,200 people.
It is reported that there are 4 new development sites for this project, which is hoped will pass through the planning stages and gain consent very quickly, so that construction work can start early in 2011.
Apparently the construction will be in partnership with the US renewable energy company, the ‘Solena Group’, who’s head office is located in Washington, DC.
Making biodiesel fuel will be from the conversion of millions of tons of waste materials, such as forestry, agricultural and food, which would have otherwise gone to landfill sites. Initially half a million tons a year, which they say will produce about 15 to 16 million gallons of environmentally safe biodiesel jet fuel which is fantastic news for helping the environment and especially for those living and working in and around London.
Just think of the knock on effects as others too, will say, “Why not me too?”
With the horrendous price of fuel constantly going up and up for the foreseeable future, and the huge unsustainable costs of imports doing nothing for our balance of payments etc, as a nation producing Billions of tons of waste annually, we are throwing away a vast fortune.
So why not instead, cut our greenhouse gas emissions and our national debt by our turning waste mountains, which when manipulated is turned into a slurry of carbons and technically managed into a usable form which will produce natural gas, biodiesel and fertilizers; and get on with building these sort of systems right around the country?
Naturally once the system starts producing; it will be able to manufacture its own electricity therefore in and of itself being an environmentally friendly full circle.
So come on UK, let’s put the ‘Great’ back into ‘Great Britain’, get stuck in, and get cracking with more of these schemes for homemade biodiesel fuel, natural gas and fertilizers to regenerate industries and our soils, plus making electricity as ways to save electricity , from our own constantly renewable energy source.
Now all this has to be real cool!
Ooop’s nearly a Merv rant !
