NEDO Launches Technology Development of Full-Scale Manufacturing Process for Biojet Fuels

- Aiming for commercial fuel production around 2030 -
April  21,2017
New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)

NEDO will launch the development of a full-scale manufacturing process technology for manufacturing biojet fuels from microalgae and wood chips. This technology development project will verify the feasibility of stable, continuous system operation over a long term and reduction of production costs, by conducting pilot-scale verification tests, including the construction of a 10,000 m2-scale microalgae culture facility.

Through this technology development project, NEDO aims to achieve commercial biojet fuel production around the year 2030 with the hope of reducing CO2 emissions originating from jet fuels in the aerospace sector.
