In April, 2005, in line with the Kyoto protocol, the Japanese government specified the use of 500kkl (crude oil equivalent) of biomass fuels for transportation use.

In January, 2006, in response to the request from the government, the oil industry in Japan announced a target plan to blend bio-ETBE (210kkl crude oil equivalent) in FY 2010, and successfully achieved the target.

In Nov, 2010, the order of mandatory use of biofuels based on the Law Concerning Sophisticated Methods of Energy Supply Structure was announced. The target was set to increase from 210kkl in 2011 to 500kkl in 2017 step by step.
