TOKYO -- Japan will begin developing a supply network for bio jet fuel, aiming to make the fuel available across the country next year, as countries around the world work to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from aviation, Nikkei has learned.

Infrastructure for handling sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) will be built at Chubu Centrair International Airport in Aichi Prefecture, in central Japan.
