GreenSky prepares to land in Thurrock

16th April 2014

Greenergy has reached agreement with Solena fuels in partnership with British Airways to become the site project facilitator for GreenSky, the world's first facility to convert landfill waste into jet fuel, at Thames Enterprise Park.

Thames Enterprise Park is being developed on the site of the former Coryton refinery in Thurrock, Essex, using land not required for construction of the Thames Oilport import terminal.

Andrew Owens, Chief Executive of Greenergy said:

"This is an ideal site for a biofuel initiative like Solena's and we are very pleased to be associated with it. The site provides a riverside location on the Thames, adjacent to Thames Oilport, with fuel storage and fuel pipelines and good road, rail and jetty infrastructure.

"Thames Enterprise Park's main goal is to provide regeneration of the former Coryton oil refinery following its closure in 2012. The facility proposed by British Airways and Solena is exactly the type of high profile technology project both we and Thurrock Council want to attract to the site, particularly given the number of skilled jobs provided."
