The world’s largest Boeing 787 operator says its top priority is to cut CO2 emissions by 20 percent in 2020 – partly by introducing biofuels to passenger jets.

All Nippon Airways timed its announcement to coincide with the climate change conference in Paris.

The airline’s microalgae-based biofuel supplier the Euglena Corporation has also announced plans to build a large demonstration plant in Yokohama next year.

It hopes to produce about 125,000 litres of biofuel a year.

The Boeing 787 will be used as the leading carrier for the project.

The aim is to commercialise biofueled aviation in time for the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo.
