Millions of people are expected to visit Japan during the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo, Boeing and Japanese aviation industry stakeholders have charted a course to develop sustainable aviation for flights during 2020 Olympic.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, using sustainably produced biofuel reduces lifecycle carbon dioxide emissions by 50 to 80 percent compared to conventional petroleum fuel.
The Initiatives for Next Generation Aviation Fuels (INAF) – a consortium of 46 organizations including Boeing, ANA (All Nippon Airways), Japan Airlines, Nippon Cargo Airlines, Japan’s government and the University of Tokyo – laid out a five-year “roadmap” to develop biofuel by 2020 as a way to reduce aviation’s environmental footprint. According to INAF the Olympics and Paralympics are “the perfect opportunity” for Japan and its airlines to showcase their environmental commitment.
Industry, government and academia in Japan need to team up to promote the introduction of sustainable aviation biofuel to support Japan’s energy security and reduce aviation’s greenhouse gas emissions.
