Innovation and Development of New CO2-Fixation-Promoting Technology for Increasing Bio-Material Production

Research Project Outline

We aim at developing an epoch-making technology for increasing the production of “carbon-neutral” bio-materials and thereby to achieve a new technology suppressing fossil-derived CO2, by means of innovatively improving CO2 assimilation and carbon transportation in plants (which are mainly soybean and Eucalyptus plants). The present level of our technology is estimated to enable 5% suppression of the total amount of annual CO2 release from Japan (if it is applied to main countries for soybean and Eucalyptus production), and 10% suppression is a target level.
