Summary

​An initiative in Japan to use biofuels in aviation by 2020

An iniative of 33 Japanese stakeholders, including Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airways, the Univeristy of Tokyo together with Boeing, has been announced to develop and use second-generation biofuels in aviation. The Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Ministry joined as an observer.

The initiative will seek to use household waste and algae to produce biofuels as it is difficult in Japan to secure edible plants such as corn and sugar cane in large quantities for such a purpose.

The initiative hopes to work out an implementation plan by next April.
