Green fuel for aircraft will soon be created, stored and distributed at Gloucestershire Airport.
Gloucestershire Airport will join the Project Heart initiative to create, store and distribute green fuel.
The trial will create fuel for small aircraft with a range of 500 miles, but it is hoped the fuel will eventually be used for larger passenger planes.
The facility is expected to start producing hydrogen in the summer of 2024.
One of the biggest contributors to global warming is air traffic and this is one of a number of projects taking place across the UK to find a greener way of flying and cutting carbon emissions.
Project Heart is a collaboration between Protium, a green hydrogen energy services company, Haskel, who manufacture hydrogen compression systems and Nel Hydrogen, a hydrogen generation and distribution specialist.
