Promoting Circular Economy

In addition to developing our own technologies, we are working with a variety of partners to achieve sustainable resources and energy recycling.

Circular Economy

Artifical
Photosynthesis

Effective use of CO2 as a raw material for chemical products

We are developing technology for artificial photosynthesis, that uses hydrogen (H2) obtained by water splitting with sunlight and carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted from factories as raw materials for chemical products.

Artifical Photosynthesis
