Further business update



Velocys plc (AIM: VLS), the sustainable fuels technology company, is pleased to announce, f urther to the business update on 4 April 2022, that it has entered into a contract with a European renewable fuels developer to provide initial engineering services to a project, which is in the planning stages. Whilst the revenue for this initial stage of the project is de minimis (and project progression to material revenues to be determined), the agreement broadens the Company's customer base and demonstrates the ability to progress its pipeline of potential global customers towards commercial contracts. This is also in line with the aims of the Company's business development function, headed by Andy Bensley.


The Company has also agreed with British Airways ("BA") to extend both the UK Altalto project Joint Development Agreement and the Option Agr eement for BA to acquire 50% of Altalto Ltd by one year to 31 March 2023. The original option was signed on 12 May 2020 and initially extended on 30 March 2021.


Velocys offers its customers a technology solution enabling commercial scale production of sustainable synthetic fuels from a variety of waste materials, such as municipal, commercial and forestry residue. Sustainable aviation fuel, SAF, is the only commercially available alternative to fossil aviation fuels.


The importance of sustainable synthetic fuels from bio-based feedstocks was also recently highlighted by President Biden, as part of the US aviation decarbonisation agenda.


The Company's customer pipeline is growing with increased demand for the Velocys technology to ramp up the commercial scale production of sustainable synthetic fuels to accelerate the global clean energy transition, and to strengthen host country fuel independence.
