Update: Japan CCS Co., Ltd. will host a virtual event “Japan-Asia CCUS Forum 2020” on October 6, 2020.

Japan CCS Co., Ltd. will host a virtual event “Japan-Asia CCUS Forum 2020” with the Global CCS Institute on October 6, 2020. At this forum, the latest information on CCS/CCUS technology development in Japan will be presented through the results and learnings from Tomakomai CCS Demonstration Project, and there will be discussions on the outlook for deployment of CCS/CCUS in Japan and Asia as well as capacity building in Asia. International speakers from various fields will also contribute to the program to share their insights on CCS/CCUS with a view towards knowledge sharing and international cooperation. Japan CCS looks forward to your participation in this forum.

Welcome Message from Toshiaki Nakajima, President, Japan CCS Co., Ltd.

Since its foundation in 2008, Japan CCS Co., Ltd. (hereinafter JCCS) has steadily conducted the Tomakomai CCS Demonstration under the direction of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the New Energy and Industrial Development Organization (NEDO). On November 22, 2019, the project safely achieved the target of 300,000 tonnes cumulative CO2 injection, making a small contribution in brightening the outlook for CCS. The Tomakomai CCS Demonstration Project has received high international recognition including from the Global CCS Institute, the co-host of this forum, as a noteworthy case of the central government, local community, and private sector working together in advancing a CCS project.

 Toshiaki Nakajima
President
Japan CCS Co., Ltd.

The project also received the approval of the CSLF (Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum) as a recognized project in October 2016, and Japan CCS was nominated regional champion for stakeholder engagement to play a key role in leading the promotion of CCS in the Asia-Pacific region.

At this forum, in addition to the achievements and learnings from the Tomakomai CCS Demonstration Project, the latest information on CCS/CCUS technology development in Japan as well as METI’s perspectives for the development of carbon recycling technology for the extensive use of CO2 will be presented. In addition, there will be discussions on the outlook for deployment of CCS/CCUS in Japan and Asia as well as capacity building in Asia.

We would like to take this occasion to express our sincere gratitude to those who have extended their support, in particular the community of Tomakomai City. We also hope this forum will become an opportunity for those in Asia and other parts of the world to deepen their understanding of CCS technology development in Japan.

 

Welcome Message from Brad Page, CEO, Global CCS Institute

Delivering on ambitious global climate change targets requires urgent action to prevent carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere and achieve negative emissions. Carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCS/CCUS) technologies are vital to reduce emissions to net-zero by mid-century and achieve global climate targets.

Critically for Japan and the Asian region, CCS/CCUS is the only likely solution for hard to decarbonise industries, such as steel manufacturing. The versatility of CCS/CCUS to deliver deep emissions reductions across the power, industrial and transportation sectors is also a great strength of the technology. In addition, CCS/CCUS enables the production of low-emissions hydrogen, presenting an enormous opportunity to support the development of a new energy economy, one that creates jobs and sustains communities.

 Brad Page
CEO
Global CCS Institute

This Forum will provide a unique opportunity to highlight this critical need for CCS/CCUS technologies, demonstrate its versatility, discuss its progress and outlook for the future both in Japan, and across Asia.

Delegates will hear of the outcomes and learnings from key CCS/CCUS research and development initiatives such as the Tomakomai CCS Demonstration Project ; successfully conducted by our Forum co-host Japan CCS Co. Ltd. under the direction of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Japan (METI) and the New Energy and Industrial Development Organization (NEDO) and significant R&D project led by Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth (RITE).

The outlook for future deployment of CCS/CCUS in Japan and Asia will also be a focus, as well as capacity building for the technology across the region. A range of international speakers will share their insights on CCS/CCUS with a view towards knowledge sharing and international cooperation. The Global CCS Institute looks forward to welcoming you to the 2020 Japan Asia CCUS Forum as we continue to work towards accelerating the deployment of CCS, a vital technology to tackle climate change.
