In partnership with Japan Technological Research Association of Artificial Photosynthetic Chemical Process (ARPChem) members, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation and the Tokyo Institute of Technology, NEDO has developed a hyperstable zeolite catalyst providing high yield, high productivity of lower olefins used as chemical raw materials from methanol to be synthesized from carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen. The project also succeeded in demonstrating its excellent performance at a small pilot scale.

These developing results will be contributed to make a significant progress towards realizing a commercially applicable olefin production process that uses CO2 and solar hydrogen as resources.
