The center will contribute to the Japanese aeronautical industry, which seeks to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from its fleet through the use of SAF, the NHK news network reported.
The US firm became a partner of Japan’s Act For Sky organization, created last March with the aim of expanding the national program to promote the use of SAF.
The organization is also made up of companies such as All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines and pursues the construction of a system that covers everything from the process of recycling the organic waste necessary to obtain SAF to the production and marketing of alternative fuel.
Boeing’s initiative builds on an agreement signed in 2019 with the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, recently expanded to include approaches associated with SAF, hydrogen and electric engine technologies, as well as future flight concepts that seek to nullify the impact of aviation on climate.
The government has established that sustainable fuel will represent 10 percent of the fuel used by its airlines by 2030.
