GYXIS CORPORATION (President and Representative Director: Fumiaki NOKURA) has decided to establish a new general incorporated association, the Institute of Japan Green LPG Promotion, together with four LPG distributors (Astomos Energy Corporation, ENEOS GLOBE Corporation, JAPAN GAS ENERGY CORPORATION, and Iwatani Corporation) to jointly promote the greening of LPG (propane and butane).
From GYXIS, President and Representative Director, Mr. Fumiaki NOKURA will assume the position of Director (Vice Chairman) of the Institute.
The main goals of this newly established Institute of Japan Green LPG Promotion are to develop new technologies to directly synthesize LPG from carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen with a yield rate of nearly 100%, and to produce LPG from dimethyl ether (DME). In the future, the Institute intends to promote the greening of all LPG demand by harnessing biomass and green hydrogen.
For more information, please refer to the press release on the official website of the Japan LPG Association*.
As a member company of the Japan LPG Association, we have been participating in the “Study Group for the Development of Green LPG Production Technology” launched by the association last fall, and through the activities of this institute, we will continue to work toward the sustainable growth of the LPG industry and the realization of a sustainable society, including the social implementation of green LPG.
