Development and Social Implementation of Innovative Technologies

For transition toward a low-carbon society, we will continue to actively promote the practical application of CCS (Carbon dioxide capture and storage), CCU (Carbon dioxide capture and utilization), and CO2-free hydrogen, for which technological innovation will be significantly expected in the future, through demonstration tests and other means.

Cooperation in the CCS Demonstration Test Project

We have been cooperating in a carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstration project that the Japan CCS Co., Ltd. has been operating in Tomakomai, Hokkaido Prefecture , on commission from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). The project is utilizing CCS technology that absorbs CO2 from gaseous power plant emissions before it can be released into the atmosphere, pumping it deep underground to sequester it. Since April 2016, our role in the project has been to supply the gas containing CO2 from the Hokkaido Refinery for use in the demonstration project.

Participation in the Working Group on the Roadmap for Carbon Recycling Technologies

We participated in the Working Group on the Roadmap for Carbon Recycling Technologies established by the METI. The Working Group was established to promote an effective and rapid development of carbon recycling technologies. The roadmap was compiled in June 2019.

Cooperation in the Hydrogen Supply Chain Demonstration Project

We are cooperating in the world's first international hydrogen supply chain demonstration project promoted by the Advanced Hydrogen Energy Chain Association for Technology Development (AHEAD) supported by NEDO. This project will contribute to the utilization of hydrogen, which does not emit CO2 during combustion, in large-scale power generation. In this project, hydrogen will be separated from liquid (methylcyclohexane), which will be transported from Brunei Darussalam, by a demonstration plant newly constructed by AHEAD on the premises of Keihin Refinery of TOA Oil Co., Ltd., the company of our Group. The plant has been operating at the Keihin Refinery since April 2020.
