Tokyo Gas Co. and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. have launched an experiment to produce methane, by capturing carbon dioxide emitted from a waste incineration plant.

In the experiment, MHI’s equipment captures CO2 generated at a waste incineration plant in Tsurumi Ward, Yokohama. The CO2 is then transported by truck to a nearby Tokyo Gas research facility, where it is converted into methane. About 200 kilograms of CO2 is collected per day and used to synthesize enough methane to supply about 260 average households for one day.
