Japanese startup Euglena aims to produce SAF for Tokyo Olympics
In October last year, the Japanese startup finished establishing a biofuel production factory, which began construction in June 2018. The company will be using the liquid within euglena as feedstock for biofuel. Euglena is a single-celled-organism, which has both plant and animal characteristics that are often found in both fresh and sea waters. Euglena is the first company that has succeeded in outdoor mass cultivation of euglena. The startup will start running the factory from this month and hopes to produce euglena-based biofuel for planes in 2020.
