Start of Demonstration for Effective Use of CO2 Captured from Power Plants
Nippon Ekitan Corporation is participating in a demonstration test for making effective use of CO2 captured from coal-fired power plants jointly conducted with Osaki CoolGen Corporation (a company jointly established by Electric Power Development Co., Ltd. (J-POWER) and The Chugoku Electric Power Co., Inc.) and Sera Saien Co., Ltd. Osaki CoolGen aims to achieve innovative, low-carbon coal-fired thermal power generation by combining an integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plant with CO2 separation and recovery. In the demonstration test, CO2 from an IGCC power plant of Osaki CoolGen, is captured, liquefied, and transported and used to replace CO2 that has been used for accelerating photosynthesis in a tomato greenhouse. It will contribute to realizing a carbon-neutral society by pursuing the possibilities for effective use of CO2.
