Stage 1 closes:


The F4C was launched on the 27 April 2017 by the Department for Transport (DfT) to promote the development of an advanced low carbon fuels industry within the UK, including supplier capabilities and skills in relevant technologies, while maximising value for money for the taxpayer.

The F4C will provide up to £20 million in capital grant funding over 3 years (2018-21). Through the scheme, DfT aim to increase domestic production of advanced low carbon fuels capable of tackling emissions from the hard-to-decarbonise aviation and HGV sectors in pursuit of long-term UK decarbonisation targets. The F4C will also provide up to £2 million of Project Development Funding in 2017-18 to support the development of proposals.

The F4C will therefore operate in two stages; Stage One (Project Development) and Stage Two (Capital Funding). Stage One is open to applications between 27th April and 08 December 2017.
