Three collaborate on carbon neutrality at Japan site
Sumitomo Chemical, Maruzen Petrochemical and Mitsui Chemicals have agreed to study the feasibility of collaborative projects to achieve carbon neutrality at the Keiyo Coastal Industrial Complex in Chiba. This is part of climate change targets all three have developed individually.
The initiative will mainly comprise measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as diversifying feedstocks, using biomass, new chemical recycling and material recycling technologies, converting to new kinds of fuels and the renewal of associated infrastructure.
Keiyo is one of Japan's largest industrial complexes, with many other materials and energy companies active there. The three will also engage with related local governments and companies through such initiatives as the Keiyo Coastal Industrial Complex Council on Carbon Neutrality.
