Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. – Carbon Neutral Research Center (MCI-CNRC) has launched within the International Institute for Carbon-Neutral Energy Research (I²CNER), Kyushu University.
MCI-CNRC is set to take the world-leading expertise that I²CNER has built up for carbon-neutral and carbon-negative technologies -including green hydrogen as well as carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS)- and combine this with the development- and industrialization-related expertise that Mitsui Chemicals has built up in aim of getting its environmentally friendly technologies into practical use. This combination will then be used as the groundwork from which to conduct joint research. Further, by carrying out focused and efficient research into the elemental technologies needed to achieve carbon neutrality, the center will speed up the process of getting these technologies adopted in society.
