Airbus forms a sustainable fuel Center of Excellence in Malaysia

11 February 2014

Airbus and key Malaysian partners recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to assess local solutions for sustainable bio-mass production in Malaysia. The aim is to determine the most suitable feedstocks to ensure that any future jet fuel production in the region is based only on sustainable solutions. The first assessment is expected to be completed by December 2014.

The Center of Excellence will help us to improve the understanding of the nature of aviation biofuel commercialization in Malaysia, to identify the opportunities and challenges, and to evaluate the possibility of social, economic, market and technology change and its cost, obstacles and challenges.

—Prof Emeritus Dato’ Sri Dr. Zakri bin Abdul Hamid, science advisor to the Prime Minister of Malaysia, chairman of MIGHT, BioTech Corp and AMIC

Other partners include AMIC (Aerospace Malaysia Innovation Centre), MiGHT (Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High technology), UPM (Universiti Putra Malaysia), CIRAD (a French research centre working with developing countries to tackle international agricultural and development issues) and BioTech Corp (Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation).

Airbus supports the certification and development of commercial quantities of sustainable alternative fuels for aviation through promoting innovative regional projects world-wide. To date, Airbus has formed partnerships in Europe, America, Australia, Middle-East and China.
