Japan’s Contributions to Carbon Recycling, the Key to Decarbonization (Mr. Hiroshi Tsuchiya, Director, Carbon Recycling Promotion Office, Agency for Natural Resources and Energy, METI)
post date : 2021.10.13
One potential key technology for achieving a decarbonized society by 2050 is carbon recycling. Japan is competitive in this field, which looks at CO2 as a resource. CO2 is separated, captured, and then reused in concrete, chemicals, and fuels, thereby reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. The carbon recycling industry covers multiple major fields including minerals, fuels, and chemicals. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has made a technology roadmap assuming the expansion of carbon recycling and a green growth strategy for carbon neutrality to support the development of recycling technology and the adoption of products through reduced costs.
The FPCJ has invited Mr. Hiroshi Tsuchiya, Director of the Carbon Recycling Promotion Office, Agency for Natural Resources and Energy of METI, to speak about the government’s vision and the current position of Japan’s latest technology from an international perspective.
