Wyoming, JCOAL Continue Carbon Tech. Collaboration (Ind. Report)
Japan Coal Energy Center
Date: 2021-08-06
In Cheyenne, the office of Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon (R) reports the state is continuing its partnership with the Japan Coal Energy Center (JCOAL) in a 5-year collaborative first signed in 2016 to promote and strengthen the coal industry, technical cooperation and facilitation of coal related R&D , and development of a Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) test project at the Wyoming Integrated Test Center in Gillette.

JCOAL operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, and is supported by more than 120 member coal-related businesses, including Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd., Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Nippon Steel and Toshiba. The organization works to promote overall coal activities, from coal mining to the field of coal utilization, toward a stable energy supply, sustainable economic growth and the reduction of the global environment emissions.

Toshiba Touts Rapid CO2 Conversion Device (New Prod. & Tech.)
Toshiba
Date: 2021-03-24
In Tokyo, Japanese electronics giant Toshiba is touting a new CO2 collection-and-conversion device that rapidly processes CO2 into carbon monoxide with chemical reactions involving electricity, according to a release. Carbon monoxide can serve as a raw material for products such as aircraft fuel.

According to Toshiba, in its present development stage, the equipment can process 1 tpy of CO2 but will be key to enabling carbon neutrality when combined with renewable energy and developed to commercial scale.

Toshiba Abandoning Coal-Fired Plant Construction Business (Int'l.)
Toshiba
Date: 2020-11-13
Japanese conglomerate Toshiba reports it will no longer accept orders for the construction of coal-fired thermal power facilities.

The announcement is in keeping with the company's goal of cutting its greenhouse gas emissions by 50 pct by 2030 from its base level of 2019 and the commencement of operations of a large-scale carbon capture facility in Fukuoka, Japan. The company also plans to expand its solar renewable energy business to ¥650 billion ($6.17 billion) by 2030, from ¥190 billion yen ($1.80 billion) in 2019.

Toshiba's announcement comes as coal continues losing ground as Germany's Siemens Energy, U.S. multinational conglomerate General Electric (GE), India's largest coal-fired power generator, NTPC Ltd, and other energy sector majors increasingly abandon Old King Coal.

Green-Hydrogen Plant Opens Near Fukushima, Japan (Int'l. Report)
Toshiba,NEDO
Date: 2020-03-20
In Japan, a consortium including Toshiba, Tohoku Electric Power and Japan's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) are touting completion of the Fukushima Hydrogen Energy Research Field (FH2R), the world’s largest facility for green hydrogen production from renewables in Fukushima. not far from the site of the 2011 nuclear disaster.

FH2R uses a 20MW solar array, backed up by renewable power from the grid, to run a 10MW electrolyser to produce up to 100kg of hydrogen an hour. The project will be used as a test bed for mass production of green H2, with initial output directed to fuel hydrogen cars and buses in Japan, according to a release.

Toshiba, PLN Partner on CO2-Free H2One Energy System (Int'l.)
Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions
Date: 2019-10-14
Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corp., reports a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Indonesian state-owned electricity company, Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) to build hydrogen-based energy systems with zero CO2 emission to meet electrical power in Indonesia's remote areas. The MoU is particularly aimed at accelerating the adoption of hydrogen-based autonomous energy supply system -- H2One™ -- in Indonesia, according to the Toshiba release.

Toshiba ESS and PLN will evaluate viable technologies and policies necessary for an advanced adoption of the commercial H2One&trade -- an integrated system that uses a renewable energy source to electrolyze hydrogen from water, and stores and uses the hydrogen in fuel cells to provide a stable delivery of CO2-free, environmentally-friendly electricity and hot water.

According to Indonesia's Electricity Power Supply Business Plan (RUPTL), the country aims to increase the ratio of its capacity of renewal energy facility from 12.52 percent in 2017 to 23 pct by 2025.
