Global warming progresses each moment. What kind of environment can we, the people who are alive right now, leave on Earth for our children and the generations to come after that? To safeguard the future of our children, our goal is to spread support for the manufacture and use of biofuel throughout Japan.
"SUSTEO" is a fuel that replaces fossil fuels and is used to realize a sustainable society. We started supplying next-generation biodiesel fuel in 2020 and biojet fuel in 2021, and their use is expanding in vehicles, ships, and aircraft.
With the completion of the demonstration plant, we declared "GREEN OIL JAPAN" aiming to "make Japan an advanced biofuel country".
Japan's first bio-jet diesel fuel production demonstration plant was completed on October 31, 2018 in the Keihin coastal area of Tsurumi-ku, Yokohama.
What is "biofuel" in the first place? Then, I will explain what kind of biofuel Euglena is working on.
Introducing the numerous energy and environment business projects that Euglena Co., Ltd. is actually working on.
We are employing various approaches to solve social issues using biofuel.
Started toward a society where the use of biofuels is commonplace in everyday life
A flight inspection aircraft owned and operated by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism flew and conducted flight inspection work while using renewable jet fuel
The first step to using environmentally friendly next-generation biofuel for general-use vehicles
Successfully demonstrated the use of a drone powered by Euglena biofuel to carry goods for the first time in Japan on Ishigaki Island

Two cities and 15 companies have newly joined us and given their support for the “GREEN OIL JAPAN” declaration, which aims to make Japan an advanced biofuel nation
Isuzu Motors and Euglena Co., Ltd. have come together to start the “DeuSEL® Project,” which aims to commercialize next-generation biodiesel
Accelerated research to diversify the procurement of future raw materials and to provide a stable supply of bio-jet and diesel fuel by establishing our biofuel business as an industry and achieving the manufacture of biofuel using several microalgae as raw materials
At the G20 Summit-related meetings held in 2019, “Euglena biodiesel fuel,” a next-generation biodiesel fuel containing Euglena, was used for the first time in the world in ordinary passenger cars driven on public roads, and Euglena Co., Ltd. conducted lectures and put up exhibits about this technology
