Research & Development

JAXA promotes three research and development programs and a fundamental research program that underpins them.

Renewable Energy Technology

Bio-jet fuels will be supplied to civil aircrafts in Japan in around 2020.
Combustion tests and engine tests have been performed to clarify the effect of the fuel change from petroleum fuel to bio-jet fuels on the emissions of the exhaust gas and the engine performance.
