Research Overview

Environmental pollution is worsening on the global level, and environmental problems have become the number one issue for modern science and society. The problem of global warming in particular threatens the survival of mankind and other living things, and must be solved through the collective wisdom of all people. We are conducting research on topics that can help prevent global warming and solve our energy problems.
Specific topics include hydrogen production from solar electrolysis of water, developing technology for electrochemical reduction, fixation and effective utilization of CO2, and hydrogen storage technology.
Diverse and active R&D is being carried out on hydrogen, a form of green energy that can replace fossil fuels. A key point is where to get the supply of hydrogen; producing it with renewable energy will reduce CO2 emissions. We are focusing our R&D efforts on a distributed hydrogen production system employing sunlight, and our aim is to meet energy demands through on-site production, with zero emissions of CO2
