Japan Airlines JAL/JL Boeing 787-9 JA863J

Japan Airlines (JAL) is collecting household waste cooking oil and utilizing it as a raw material for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

In collaboration with the city of Yokohama, which is participating in the “FRY to FLY Project” aimed at achieving a decarbonized society through domestic resource recycling, household waste cooking oil will be collected at the Aeon Food Style Kamoi store.

The collected waste cooking oil, gathered in collection bottles specific to each household, will be deposited in collection boxes installed at the store. Subsequently, it will be transported to an SAF manufacturing facility, where the produced SAF will be used for the operation of aircraft.

Trials will be conducted on March 16th and 17th, April 20th and 21st, and from May 13th to 19th, with full-scale collection starting on June 5th. The initiative aims to expand from Yokohama City to other regions across the country in the future.
