The Aviation Carbon Transition (ACT) program will support initiatives and projects aimed at reducing direct and indirect emissions from airport infrastructure to enable lower or zero emissions; research and develop decarbonisation or alternative fuels for use by airlines; and design and develop processes and procedures to eliminate emissions, with Bristol Airport being a potential test site.
Simon Earles, Director of Sustainability and Corporate Affairs at Bristol Airport, said: “The launch of the ACT program will allow us to develop initiatives and projects to contribute to the decarbonization of aviation and the creation of green jobs.
“We are making great strides towards our goal of being carbon neutral for emissions under our direct control by 2025. The ACT program demonstrates our commitment to working with others to support innovation in decarbonizing emissions transport and flight beyond our direct control. We look forward to reviewing applications in due course. “
