Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) results in reduced CO2 emissions compared with traditional jet fuels, and this biofuel is expected to greatly contribute to the realization of a decarbonized society in the coming years. Euglena’s “SUSTEO” is a SAF brand manufactured from raw materials such as used cooking oil and microalgae, which is mixed with traditional fossil jet fuel to create a more eco-friendly fuel.

Sojitz Group will continue to seek new opportunities to utilize SAF biofuel in its business jet operations moving forward with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions through its business activities.
