Initiatives Introduction CCUS(Carbon dioxide Capture, Utilization and Storage)


“Asia CCUS Network” has launched
Mr. Kajiyama, Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan announced the launch of the ”Asia CCUS Network (ACN)” in the 1st Asia CCUS Network Forum held on June 22nd and 23rd. ACN is an international industry-academia-government platform aiming at knowledge sharing and improvement of the business environment for utilization of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) throughout the Asia region. The secretariat of ACN is Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA). 13 countries (all ASEAN member states, Australia, USA and Japan) and more than 100 companies, research institutions, and international organizations, including JGC Holdings and JAPAN NUS (JANUS) from JGC group, have so far expressed their intention to participate in the network.
Ministers of each country made a welcome speech for ACN in the forum. In their speech, development of CCUS technologies was highly expected as a solution for decarbonization because most of Southeast Asian countries need to continue depending on fossil fuels. In the session of “Japan CCUS showcase” on the second day, Mr. Kudo, general manager of JANUS, made a presentation regarding Gundih CCS project.

Potential maps in ASEAN Region
JANUS made some proposals and advices to METI before the launch of ACN. As a first step of their program, JANUS surveyed three countries (Viet Nam, Malaysia, Indonesia) and visualized the results by creating the Asia CCUS Potential Maps. The maps provide information about major CO2 emissions sources, possible storage areas as well as gas pipelines to perform preliminary evaluation of CCUS feasibility. The maps are available on the ACN website.
JANUS would like to propose further development and expansion of the CCUS potential maps and contribute to the progress toward CCUS project deployment in the ASEAN region including Gundih CCS project by JGC group.
