GHG Reduction 2 [Technology for collecting /using GHG]
We need to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) in our planet’s atmosphere.
New innovations make it possible to break down and recover GHGs from the air, store them, reuse them, and prevent their emissions.
Energy-saving solution with high-efficiency GaN device
We will introduce an energy-saving solution using high-efficiency GaN-HEMT (gallium nitride high electron mobility transistor). The newly developed GaN-HEMT enables highly efficient operation due to the high-speed movement of electrons compared to conventional silicon semiconductors, which can reduce unnecessary heat generation of electronic devices and save energy. For example, we will realize various energy-saving solutions that reduce the power consumption of equipment that supports society and daily life, such as server equipment used in offices and data centers, microwave heating equipment (microwave ovens) used in homes and chemical plants. This technology will contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions while supporting the digital society of the future, and will make the world more sustainable.
LARGE SCALE CCS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT IN TOMAKOMAI, HOKKAIDO, JAPAN
The Tomakomai CCS Demonstration Project, launched in 2012 in Tomakomai City, Hokkaido Prefecture, is Japan’s first large scale CCS demonstration project. The project has been led by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), and operated by Japan CCS Co., Ltd. with the objective of demonstrating the practical use of CCS technology.
CCS (Carbon-dioxide Capture and Storage) is an innovative technology to mitigate global warming, and in order to verify the safety and reliability of CCS, the Tomakomai Project started the injection of CO2 at a scale of 100 thousand tonnes per year from April 2016, and successfully achieved the initial target of 300 thousand tonnes of cumulative injection on November 22, 2019.
The project has entered a new stage, and the Japanese government is considering the use of the Tomakomai facilities for the demonstration of "Carbon Recycling", the capture, utilization and storage of carbon dioxide, with the aim of achieving a decarbonized society and our sustainable SDGs goals.

Approach to Create the Sustainable Global Environment Using Highly Concentrated Fulvic Acid (Fujimin)
【Effect of Fujimin】
Fujimin is a highly concentrated fulvic acid produced by utilizing forest resources. Fulvic acid has a variety of effects such as chelating effect, which allows minerals in the soil to be efficiently incorporated into plants. Therefore, Fujimin can be improving soil and promoting plant and forest growth
【Create Sustainable Global Environment】
It is possible to contribute sustainable forest management through the recycling of the forest resources, promote forestry and regional development using Fujimin in Forest
Fujimin can improve the degraded farmland by climate change. As a results, Fujimin will be possible to reduce deforestation caused by slash-and -burn and contribute to the realization of carbon-free society

Delivering social changes through the measurement and management of GHG emissions
Today, we are witnessing accelerated global move towards tackling climate change. Corporate carbon management is very important to achieve their decarbonized company management. Wastebox, Inc. would like to show our series of comprehensive e-learning videos. These e-learning videos include different topics such as measuring corporate GHG emissions across supply chains, SBT target setting in line with the Paris Agreement, implementing CO2 reduction activities such as renewable energy and the concept of the carbon management that enables companies to easily communicate their environmental impacts to society. In Japan, many companies have begun measuring their GHG emissions across their supply chains and setting their SBT targets. Wastebox wishes to contribute to Japan’s leading move towards a decarbonized society at a global top level through our e-learning videos.
We would also like to show some examples of our clients who successfully transformed their business models to decarbonized while also showing their great contribution to Japan’s decarbonization.
