Tokyo Gas Announces Development of Onsite CO2 Recycling Technology

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 9/28/2021, Location: Asia

Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd. (“Tokyo Gas”) has developed an onsite CCU1 technology (the “Technology”) that recycles CO2 and produces potassium carbonate at the site of city gas customers by causing reactions between the CO2 in the emissions from city gas equipment and hydroxide. Potassium carbonate is a raw material used in various industrial products such as detergents and fertilizers.

The Technology uses CARBiN-X (the “Device”), a CO2 capture device by Canada’s CleanO2 Carbon Capture Technologies (“CleanO2”), which can produce potassium carbonate. Although the Device has a track record in North America, this will be its first introduction in Japan. Since gas emission properties and the air environment differ between North America and Japan, Tokyo Gas conducted joint examinations with CleanO2 and experiments in Japan, culminating in the successful development of a unique production technology.

Due to its small size (2.0m x 0.85m x 1.9m (LxWxH)), the Device can be installed in places with limited space, such as commercial facilities, enabling CO2 emissions reduction and recycling at various locations. We will aim to commercialize the Technology through demonstrations combining customers ’ gas equipment and the Device.

In our management vision “Compass2030,” we declared that we will take on the challenge of achieving Net-Zero CO2 across all business operations, including at customers’ sites. By providing various solutions, including the onsite CCU technology, we will continue to engage in initiatives to reduce environmental impact on a global scale, together with our customers.
