As Fulcrum's first facility in the United Kingdom, NorthPoint will be located at the Essar Stanlow Manufacturing Complex in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire. The site was chosen due to its industrial nature, a skilled local workforce and existing refinery infrastructure, including a direct pipeline to Manchester Airport which can be used to transport the sustainable aviation fuel to aircraft.

Fulcrum's partner, Essar, will assist with the blending and supply the sustainable aviation fuel to airlines, with Stanlow Terminals Limited providing product storage and logistics solutions for the project under a long-term agreement.

In addition, Fulcrum NorthPoint was awarded a grant by the UK Government Department for Transport.
