Japan Airlines uses camelina, jatropha and algae derived jet fuel blend

January 3rd, 2009 | 2 Comments | Posted in Algae-Aviation-Fuel

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Japan Airlines says it will be the first Asian carrier to fly using a sustainable biofuel refined from the energy crop camelina. This month it will use a blend of 50 percent biofuel and 50 percent traditional Jet-A jet fuel on a B747-300 aircraft. The biofuel component will be a mixture of three second-generation biofuel feedstocks: camelina, jatropha and algae.

Camelina, also known as gold-of-pleasure or false flax, is an energy crop, given its high oil content and ability to grow in rotation with wheat and other cereal crops. “Our feedstock selection was based on firm sustainability criteria designed to avoid the mistakes of preceding biofuel generations,” said Boeing Biofuels Program Manager Tim Rahmes. “Working together with Japan Airlines and our other industry partners we’ve successfully partnered to create a next-generation, plant-derived jet fuel blend that has replacement fuel qualities that meet or exceed all of the current jet fuel specification properties.”
