Large-scale CCS Demonstration Project at Tomakomai
Japan’s first large scale CCS demonstration project has been aiming for demonstration at practical scale.The CO2 injection was started in FY2016. The initial target of approximately 300,000 tons cumulative injection was achieved in November 2019, maintaing close collaboration with the local community.The Project has proceeded smoothly to date. Operational technology and data demonstrating safety of CCS have been obtained, and thus their contribution to the practical application of CCS technology is expected. Presently, a combination of various monitoring methods (seismic survey, observation of micro-seismicity, etc.) is implemented. Also, Japan is undertaking research and development of storage technology for safe and efficient CCS implementation such as Micro bubble technology and Optical fiber technology. As the next step, it is planned to promote carbon recycling by utilizing the Tomakomai CCS facility. The Tomakomai project will evaluate the effectivenes of the carbon-recycled methanol production, which would further demonstrate the potential of the Tomakomai site for CCUS/Carbon Recycling.
