Compressed air energy storage

Compressed air energy storage (CAES) is a way to store energy generated at one time for use at another time using compressed air. At utility scale, energy generated during periods of low energy demand (off-peak) can be released to meet higher demand (peak load) periods.

The foundation aims to contribute to Japan’s international efforts on the environment, sharing project collaborations as well as promoting Japan’s rich conservation knowledge and experience in developing nations.

  • A Novel Solid Oxide Electrolysis Cell with Improved Efficiency and Durability

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Northwestern researchers have developed the ability to store large-scale electrical energy for renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Established energy storage technologies such as hydroelectric water pumping and underground compressed air storage are limited to specific geographic sites and most batteries and ultracapacitors have limited energy storage capacities and times.

  • Industrial wastewater treatment

    Type: 
    Product

    Emefcy’s EBR for industrial wastewater treatment is based on three components new to biological wastewater treatment: - Anodes (in anaerobic conditions): Where the bacterial oxidation of the organic matter occurs - Cathodes (which are exposed to air): Where the corresponding reduction reaction takes place - An electrical circuit that includes the external load connecting the anodes to the cathodes. A biofilm naturally develops on the anode oxidizing the organic matter into carbon dioxide.

  • ULV Ultra Lightweight Vehicle Ultra Lightweight Small Mobility

    Type: 
    Product

    The expectation for next-generation mobility is growing in the measure about low carbonation and the smart community of a transportation section. The super-light weight small mobility ULV which made it the concept 'to be under an automobile more than a bicycle' is developed. The number is acquired by category of mini car and a street-legal is possible. Although the development as EV is made to enhance from social requirements now the designed concept of assumed Multi-PM (Prime Mover) which made compressed air gasoline hydrogen etc. the energy source is introduced.

  • Passive method for capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Background: Carbon capture is a promising approach for the removal of excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in an attempt to prevent and reverse climate change. Current approaches toward capturing carbon are focused on the point of production specifically industrial and energy settings. However these methods consume high levels of energy while ignoring the other major sources of atmospheric carbon dioxide. This technology utilizes a granular sorbent material for binding atmospheric carbon dioxide.
