Our biofuel "Susteo"

Euglena's biofuel "SUSTEO"

Our biofuel
"Susteo"

"Susteo" is a fuel that replaces fossil fuels and is used to realize a sustainable society.
Next-generation biodiesel fuel will be supplied in 2020, and biojet fuel will be supplied in 2021.
Its use is expanding in vehicles, ships, and aircraft.

"Susteo" = sustainable fuel = bio-fuel


The fuel that can be purchased at gas stations in general towns is made from petroleum excavated from the ground. The carbon dioxide emitted when burned is based on the carbon that originally slept deep in the ground, and the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases unilaterally.

On the other hand, biofuels are produced from terrestrial biological resources (biomass raw materials) such as plants and animals. Biological resources absorb carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in advance by photosynthesis in the growth process and ecosystem. Therefore, the carbon dioxide emitted when burning biofuel is simply restored from what was previously taken in from the atmosphere.
Biofuel is a sustainable fuel that is being developed with the concept of not increasing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

What is biofuel made of?

バイオ燃料の原料となる生物資源(バイオマス原料)には、たくさんの種類があり、バイオ燃料の進化とともに、その原料も移り変わってきました。まず最初に原料となったのは、サトウキビやとうもろこしなどの食用植物。ただ、食料との競合や、無理な栽培による森林破壊などの問題がありました。これらの問題が起こらない原料としていま主流になっているのが、使用済みの食用油などの廃棄物系原料です。捨てられてしまうはずのものを再利用することができ、CO₂削減効果も高いため、年々その需要は世界中で上がり続けています。
今後ますますバイオ燃料の需要が増えていく際に、原料不足による問題を起こさないためにも、持続可能な原料確保に向けた技術開発を進めていく必要があります。

Raw materials for Susteo, what are used cooking oil and the microalgae Euglena?

Susteo are used cooking oil and Euglena oil extracted from the Euglena
Most of the ratio is used cooking oil, which is 90% or more, and Euglena oil and fat is 10% or less.
While used cooking oil is a raw material currently used all over the world, it is predicted that there will be a day when it will run out when the demand for biofuel increases in the future due to its limited resources.
Euglena is also focusing on the technological development of Euglena oil and fat culture as a raw material that does not compete with food and can be supplied according to the required amount.

バイオジェット燃料(SAF)

サステオのジェット燃料は、国際規格「ASTM D7566 Annex6規格」に適合したバイオジェット燃料(SAF)です。
ユーグレナ社のバイオ燃料製造実証プラントでは、バイオ燃料アイソコンバージョンプロセス技術を採用しており、取得したASTM認証に適合したバイオジェット燃料は世界で初めて。なお、サステオのジェット燃料は既存石油系ジェット燃料へ最大50%混合が可能です。

バイオディーゼル燃料

サステオのディーゼル燃料は、バスや船舶といった陸・海のモビリティにて活用されています。
「次世代バイオ燃料」の特徴は、分子構造が市販軽油と全く同じ点です。そのため、排ガス試験の結果では、一般車両のエンジンに負荷をかけること無く、含有率100%で使用できることを確認しています。
また、サステオのディーゼル燃料はいま街中を走行している車にそのまま使用できたり、電気や水素といった燃料電池自動車のように新たに供給インフラを整備する必要がないため、日常生活になじみやすいといったメリットがあります。

Susteo "Susteo" logo

Susteo was named to make biofuels more accessible to many people. Susteo is, "sustainable oil" has been derived from.

The character part Susteo powerfully and the kindness to the earth. Susteo Dot", which Susteo of three sizes of the smallest unit that means "diversity", is a burden on the earth due to the free use of Susteo Is reduced, and the design expresses how the earth regains its green color. This "Susteo Dot" is a symbol of the practice of "carbon neutral" Our desire and determination to solve the world's environmental problems.
