Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd., Yokohama City and the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group1 (the MHI Group) have agreed to jointly launch the verification test from January 2023 toward establishment of the technology that separates and captures carbon dioxide (CO2) contained in the exhaust gas released from the Tsurumi Plant of the Resources and Waste Recycling Bureau, City of Yokohama, (the waste to energy plant) and to utilize the CO2 as a resource (CCU2 technology).

In the verification test, the organizations will conduct examination for establishment of CCU technology that separates and captures CO2 from the exhaust gas emitted from the waste to energy plant by technologies of the MHI Group and convers the CO2 into not only a raw material for methanation3 but an industrial gas and other versatile products. The verification test is part of initiatives based on the cooperation agreement4 concluded between Tokyo Gas and Yokohama City in January 2022.

Tokyo Gas is working on development of CCU technologies, such as direct utilization of CO2 as an industrial gas and other products and conversion of CO2 into concrete5, carbonate6 and other resources. Going forward, we will aim to commercialize the technology, moving forward with verification tests at the site of our customers and other processes.

In its Management Vision, Compass2030, the Tokyo Gas Group sets forth “Establishment of a value co-creation ecosystem7 ” and “Leadership in the effort to achieve Net-Zero CO2.” Based on the Vision, the Group will continue to create and offer various values together with its customers, business partners and society and will contribute to achieving a decarbonized society while working on promotion of digital solutions, expansion of partner companies and other initiatives.
