Carbon Recycling Fund Institute

Contribute to innovation by using CO2 as a resource



The Carbon Recycling Fund, a general incorporated association, aims to simultaneously solve global warming issues and improve energy access, and aims to create innovation by promoting research grants and public relations activities that treat and reuse CO2 as a resource.
What is carbon?
Carbon footprint means CO2. However, on Earth, CO2 exists in various forms and changes, so it can also mean carbon as part of the “carbon cycle.”

“What’s Carbon Recycling? Japan’s Pioneering Effort”

Carbon recycling is at the forefront of Japan’s efforts to achieve carbon neutrality. This process involves capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) and converting it into useful products, such as chemicals and fuels. Unlike traditional recycling, which reuses physical materials, carbon recycling transforms CO2 at a chemical level, helping to reduce the carbon footprint and promote a circular economy.

Japan’s commitment to carbon recycling is evident in its significant investments in research and development. The government sees this technology as key to a sustainable future, reducing reliance on fossil fuels, and leading global innovation in environmental solutions.

In essence, Japan’s approach to carbon recycling is more than an environmental initiative; it’s a step towards a sustainable, carbon-neutral society, setting a global example in turning environmental challenges into opportunities.
