Environment Innovation Strategy
The Japanese Government formulated “Environment Innovation Strategy” in this year to pursue the reduction of global GHG emissions toward carbon neutrality and the further reduction of accumulated atmospheric CO2 ”Beyond Zero.” In this strategy, we described “Innovation Action Plans” for establishment of the innovative technologies by 2050, with specific target cost and estimated amount of reduction in GHG emission, contents & formation of R&D, and the process from basic research to demonstration.
“Environment Innovation Strategy” , here formulated based on the Long-Term Strategy consists of
1) “Innovation Action Plans” which describe 16 technological subject with cost target.
2) “Acceleration Plans” which detail research framework and investment promotion policy.
3) “Zero-Emission Initiatives” which depict collaborative works and outreach activities with global leaders for social implementation.
To implement this strategy, we have established “Global Zero Emission Research Center (GZR)” in National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology(AIST), as the base of international joint research in collaboration with other research institutes in G21 countries. The center covers a variety of fundamental research topics including hydrogen and CCUS that are essential to realizing decarbonization technologies, such as “Zero-carbon steel” and “Bio-jet fuels”, by gathering the wisdom of the world.
