to-the-point: Japan plans bio jet fuel flights for 2020 Olympics
Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) is considering conducting plane flights using bio jet fuel during the 2020 Summer Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
To that end, it will set up a study committee, which will initially outline the process for the future introduction of the product and clarify problems related to it. Eventually, it will plan the flights, ensure the supply of the bio jet fuel and discuss possible domestic production. A number of local business operators have already done research and development (E&D) in the field, aiming to kick off production between 2025-2030, METI noted.
