Reduction of CO2 Emission
Reduce CO2 emissions in manufacturing and power generation through CO2 separation and capture and improved productivity
We contribute to CO2 circulation with a wide range of measurement and analysis technologies from production processes to materials, including gas monitoring for CO2 separation and capture at CCUS, analysis/evaluation of catalysts and materials for the production of chemicals/fuels from CO2.
To achieve carbon neutrality, it is essential to effectively utilize CO2 (carbon dioxide), one of the greenhouse gases, as a resource, in parallel with the utilization of hydrogen.
Currently, the R&D and initiatives in carbon recycling technologies that actively utilize CO2, such as CO2 capture, utilization, and storage technologies called CCUS (Carbon Dioxide Capture, Utilization and Storage) and chemical/thermal recycling technologies for waste plastics are progressing widely. Additionally, energy management technologies are being developed to visualize and optimize the energy used in carbon recycling.
The establishment and utilization of these technologies will lead to the reduction of CO2 emissions through energy saving and the use of renewable energy, as well as the reuse and removal of CO2, i.e., realization of the 4Rs of carbon circulation - Reduce, Remove, Reuse and Recycle.
