„TOKYO : Japan’s industry ministry on Thursday set a target of annual carbon dioxide (CO2) storage capacity of 6-12 million tonnes by 2030 under a long-term roadmap for carbon capture and storage (CCS). Japan sees CCS technology – which removes CO2 emissions from the atmosphere and stores them underground, and which a host of Japanese companies said on Thursday they were working on – as essential to achieving its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.“
