Keynote Title:
Challenges and Opportunities for Decarbonizing Power Generation


Decarbonizing from power generation is one of the crucial matters to realize a net-zero carbon society. MHI group has been providing equipment and many solutions so far and doing research and development for a variety of power systems. In this presentation, the latest technologies relating to the usage of hydrogen/ammonia for power generation combined with Carbon dioxide Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) will be presented mainly. Affordability, reliability, and flexibility in terms of fuel and operation must be considered in a system design and also a fuel supply establishment. New technologies in the field of material, manufacturing, catalyst, combustion, AI/IoT, etc. have been developed or are under development for this purpose. Some projects for system implementation and verification will be also presented. It is sure that continuous challenges are necessary for the world’s sustainable development.
