Bristol Airport has confirmed it will provide funding up to £250,000 for South West businesses that can offer research or projects to help decarbonise the aviation industry.
Aviation Carbon Transition (ACT) Programme can provide grants up to £50,000 for each company willing to take part, with no cap on the number of applications being awarded and Bristol Airport will look favourably on matched-funded projects.
Sustainability director, Simon Earle, believes that North Somerset and its surrounding areas offer a range of expertise for the airport.
Mr Earle said: “Our region has a unique cluster of aerospace companies, expertise, and world-leading universities.
"The ACT Programme will provide them with funding to kick-start exciting new initiatives to move aviation towards net-zero, with the option of the airport being available as a testbed for new technology.
