Susumu Nibuya, Representative Director, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Idemitsu Kosan said: “To achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, we have decided to initially focus our resources on emethanol, along with blue ammonia and SAF. We are eager to learn from HIF Global, a pioneer in emethanol with extensive expertise in this field. Together, we aspire to develop a market for e-methanol and synthetic fuels.”

The investment by Idemitsu completes the first step in the four-part cooperation previously announced, which included investment, purchase of eFuels, development of the eFuels markets in Japan and creation of CO2 supply chains. The development of the Japanese market for eFuels is accelerating and is supported by Japanese policymakers in the Green Growth Strategy Through Achieving Carbon Neutrality in 2050.
