Boeing Facility in Japan to Study Sustainable Aviation Fuels, Electrification
@Boeing

Boeing has opened a new Boeing Research and Technology (BR&T) center in Japan to focus on sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), electric / hydrogen propulsion, robotics, digitization and composites.

The BR&T – Japan Research Center will be located in Nagoya.

This step by Boeing extends the 2019 cooperation agreement with Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) to include sustainable technology. The agreement now includes focus on sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), electric and hydrogen powertrain technologies, and future flight concepts that will promote zero climate impact aviation as an addition to exploring the sectors of electric and hybrid-electric propulsion, batteries, and composite manufacturing that will enable new forms of urban mobility.

Boeing has also become the latest member of ACT FOR SKY - a consortium to commercialize, promote and expand the use of Japan-produced SAF. Boeing has also been working with All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL) on sustainable aviation, which includes SAF-powered flights and launching the 787 Dreamliner.
