Boeing to Open R&D Centre on Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in Japan

Last Monday, Boeing announced its plan to open a research and development (R&D) focusing on the development of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), as well as electric and hydrogen aircraft technology.

The R&D centre will be located in Nagoya, which is already home to many of Boeing’s major industrial partners and suppliers, and marks the latest extension of an existing Cooperation Agreement, which the US manufacturer signed in 2019 with Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).

Boeing said that the facility will also focus on robotics, digitalisation, automation and carbon fibre composite materials for the aviation industry.
