In order to further the development of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and the technology of electric and hydrogen-powered aircraft, Boeing Co. said on Monday that it intends to construct a research and development (R&D) centre in Japan.

According to a news release from the American aircraft maker, the facility will also concentrate on robotics, digitalization, automation, and carbon fibre composite materials for the aviation sector.

Although electric and hydrogen-powered aircraft may contribute less to emissions reductions, the potential to manufacture more SAF is crucial to the global aviation industry’s goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2050.

The industry needs significant investment in SAF, which is currently in low supply and significantly more expensive than traditional jet fuel. SAF uses feedstock like animal fat and cooking oil. View More

The sector wants to increase SAF output from less than 0.5 percent in 2021 to 65 percent of fuel requirements by 2050.

ANA Holdings Inc (9202.T) and Japan Airlines Co Ltd (9201.T), two local airline operators, have each pledged to use SAF to cover 10% of their fuel demands by 2030 in accordance with a government goal, despite the fact that SAF manufacturing is currently unavailable in Japan.

The Japanese competitor ENEOS Holdings Inc (5020.T) and the French oil and gas business TotalEnergies SE (TTEF.PA) announced a feasibility study to evaluate the production of SAF at ENEOS’s Negishi refinery in the eastern Japanese city of Yokohama in April. Production might perhaps start in 2025, with a planned capacity of 300,000 tonnes annually.

By 2030, Boeing promises that all of their aircraft will be certified to operate only on SAF.
