"Low Carbon Society" mission area

Realization of a low carbon society through game changing technologies

It is a global issue to build a "low-carbon society," in which the emission of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide (CO2), which is a cause of the global warming problem, should be suppressed. To tackle this issue, we need an innovative technology based on a completely new concept and science, in other words, the creation of "game changing technology."

For the creation of a game changing technology, completely new proposals made by researchers in different fields are also important, in addition to the challenging proposals that may result from the integration, utilization, and/or development of the forefront research methods by researchers in this field.

In order to promote it, we show "bottleneck issues" (technological bottlenecks for practical implementation of research results) based on the opinions of experts. Through this theme, we aim to contribute to the realization of a low-carbon society by creating "game changing technology" that drastically reduces CO2 while satisfying the service demand expected in 2050 and connecting research results to practical implementation.
