Webinar: Clean Coal Technologies in Japan, 2019
Japan is considered the world leader in high-efficiency low-emission (HELE) technologies. The Japanese coal-fired power plant fleet is rated as one of the world´s most efficient. Nevertheless, around 20% of Japan´s greenhouse gas emissions are caused by coal-fired power generation. Given the fact that Japan seeks to further expand coal-fired capacity, reducing emissions from coal-firing must be a top priority.
As preparation for the next German-Japanese Energy and Environmental Dialogue Forum ECOS provided a webinar on the topic of Clean Coal Technologies in Japan on June 5, 2019.
The webinar on
"Clean Coal Technologies in Japan (CCT) – Political Strategies and Current Projects"
- The status quo and official planning for coal-fired power plants in Japan
- The technology road map for introduction of Clean Coal Technologies including HELE (high efficiency, low emission) technologies as well as CCS (Carbon Capture & Storage) and CCU (Carbon Capture & Use) technologies in Japan
- Current domestic and international CCT demonstration projects
