Sylvain Motycka speaks at the White House's GreenGov panel

Sylvain Motycka, Vice President Technology at Solena, was recently invited by the White House to speak at the first GreenGov Symposium held in Washington D.C.

During this panel, Mr. Motycka discussed the need for better lifecycle analysis tools and methodologies to assess Biomass to Liquid projects when using Municipal Solid Waste as raw material. He highlighted the need to increase international discussions to develop a methodology that could be harmoniously used amongst major global airlines.

Solena Group and British Airways partnered to develop Europe’s first sustainable jet fuel plant that converts waste, normally destined to landfills, into aviation fuel. The plant is expected to produce 1800 barrels of biofuels per day from 2014.
