IHI to scale up algae aviation fuel technology in Thailand ahead of Tokyo 2020 Games

November 2, 2017 |

In Thailand, Japan’s IHI is seeking to have commercial microalgae-to-aviation fuel technology ready in time to supply the 2020 Tokyo Olympics so is preparing a large-scale trial in conjunction with Siam Cement Group at SCG’s land in Saraburi Province in central Thailand. The project aims to scale up technology developed by Japan’s New Energy Industrial Technology Development Organization with support from the University of Kobe, growing algae outdoors in 10,000 m2 facilities, seven times larger than where it is currently being trialed Kagoshima.
