F08 - Cleaner Fuels

In order to achieve climate targets it is necessary to manufacture new fuels with advances in utilization technology and properties corresponding to them. This will include net zero carbon fuels that are offset by other carbon sinks. Biofuels, which have been attracting attention as carbon-neutral fuels in recent years, should also be featured. In this forum, we will discuss the progress of utilization technology, fuel properties and manufacturing technology required by new utilisation technology, leading to net zero targets.
