The alternative fuel could reduce between a 50% and 80% their greenhouse gas emissions, thus outperforming traditional petroleum-derived fuel environmentally.

“We intend to promote SAF more widely among companies and adopt the All Japan approach”, ANA president Yuji Hirako said, during the establishment of the Act For Sky group, which is in charge of driving the program in Japan.

Hirako highlighted that SAF´s domestic production is also important from the economic security´s point of view, as nowadays almost all the bio-fuel supplies come from abroad and are expensive.

Act For Sky wants to expand the boundaries of Japanese industry by building a system that covers all the recycling process, from the material collection to production.

The organization, formed Wednesday, will work together with local prefectures and food manufacturers to collect used cooking oil and other waste needed to obtain SAF, that it then sell to airlines.

The Japanese government stated that by 2030, sustainable fuel will account for 10% of the fuel used by domestic airlines.

An important aspect for its use within the industry is that SAF does not require technical modifications to aircraft.
