Bio Fuel

 Komatsu is committed to the environment
Komatsu  is working in Joint Venture in Indonesia to develop Bio Deisel fuelled dump trucks. The source for this fuel is the non food source plant, Jatophra, which grows faster than alternative Bio-Fuel sources and can be cultivated in less fertile soil. Jatophra Bio-Diesel is also better suited to warm weather climates such as Australia.
 
Komatsu estimates that 1,000 bio-fuel powered dump trucks will cut 200,000 tons of CO² emissions per year, equivalent to the carbon emissions generated by the company’s factories in Japan.
