To significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the transport sector including automobiles, aircrafts, and other vehicles toward carbon neutralization, ENEOS is developing a synthetic fuel production process using CO2 and hydrogen as an alternative to existing petroleum products (gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel etc.).

Since synthetic fuels consist of components quite close to those of existing petroleum products, it has the advantage of being able to use existing refinery equipment, the fuel distribution infrastructure, automobiles and aircrafts. Consequently, when this technology can be established, it should be possible to quickly spread the use of synthetic fuels in society.

Commercialization for this technology will require a variety of technical innovations such as production process engineering and catalysts technology., so ENEOS is participating in the 'Green Innovation Fund – Development of Technology for Producing Fuel Using CO2, etc. Project' of Japan's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) and working to establish technology for highly-efficient production process for synthetic fuels.
