Mitsubishi Corporation Announces Participation in a DAC Project in Louisiana, USA

TOKYO, Apr 16, 2024 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Corporation (hereinafter "MC") is pleased to announce its effort to advance Direct Air Capture (DAC) technologies, through participation in a project in Louisiana, USA.

Through the project, MC collaborates with multiple third-party DAC technology companies in order to identify innovative technologies anticipated to substantially lower costs, advancing the technology maturation through detailed evaluation and engineering works with the goal of facilitating the early commercialization of DAC.

This project will be in collaboration with Shell US Gas & Power (hereinafter "Shell"), who is leading the overall engineering and deployment as part of the project. The project scope centers on a feasibility study that includes evaluating the performance of multiple DAC technologies by demonstrations, supporting DAC technology companies as they design deployments, investing in prioritized distinct DAC technologies, and identifying opportunities to reduce the energy, water, and land resources required for carbon removal, as well as defining the technology needs for future deployment at scale.

MC is committed to contributing to the achievement of a carbon-neutral society. This includes plans to utilize captured CO2 as feedstock for producing synthetic fuels such as e-natural gas and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) on a long-term basis, while also aiming for the global expansion of the DAC business.



In October 2021, MC unveiled its roadmap to carbon neutrality and its aim to be a net-zero greenhouse-gas emissions company by the year 2050, while striving for a stable energy supply and low-carbon transition. In order to mitigate global warming and achieve net-zero, not only reducing GHG emissions but also removing residual GHG from the atmosphere, namely Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) including DAC, is crucial. Hence, there is growing anticipation for the early adoption of DAC technology in society, driven by its potential for innovation and the opportunities to reduce costs through scaling up.
