Carbon Recycling Research and Development Project - Challenge for Implementation of CO₂ Recycling -
Sojitz Corporation (“Sojitz”), together with Tokuyama Corporation (“Tokuyama”) and NanoMist Technologies Co., Ltd. (“NanoMist Technologies”), has been received that it will be selected for a New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (“NEDO”) consignment project designed to develop and propagate carbon recycling technologies: “Development of Technologies for Carbon Recycling and Next-Generation Thermal Power Generation / Development of Technologies for CO₂ Reduction and Utilization / Development of Technologies for CO₂ Utilization in Carbonates, Concrete Products, and Concrete Structures.”
This is a three-year project that will run through the 2022 fiscal year. The project seeks to achieve the cost reduction of CO₂ separation and capture, as well as its reuse, which are technological issues announced in the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry’s roadmap*1 for carbon recycling technologies.

Currently, CO₂ derived from limestone combustion is used as a raw material in the production process of carbonates (soda ash). But in this project, it is our aim that CO₂ in the combustion exhaust gas of coal-fired power plants can be absorbed by a technically developed NanoMist*2 and used as a replacement raw material for carbonate production, thereby reducing CO₂ emissions.
Through this project, Sojitz will try to solve social issues in countries around the world by realizing the early implementation of carbon recycling in society with new Japanese-developed technologies.
