Sustainable Carbon-Free Magnesium Power Association
The magnesium recycling society proposed by Takashi Yabe, Professor Emeritus of Tokyo Institute of Technology in 2005 has been featured in many media. Notable is the October 2009 TIME magazine, which was reported at the head of the Scientist and Inventor category of environmental heroes.
After that, Professor Yabe devoted himself to the development of solar-pumped lasers, seawater desalination equipment, laser refining, magnesium-driven engines, and magnesium fuel cells, which are the basis of this recycling society, and obtained numerous patents.
In 2020, all the technologies were finally completed, and the rest was to take a step toward practical use. It was completed as a technology that solves 13 of the 17 SDGs items such as carbon-free power generation, securing water resources, and environmental-friendly energy required for SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). It is the only promising technology for Japan's policy to achieve carbon-free society in 2030. In order to promote this original system originating in Japan throughout Japan within 10 years, we will establish a head office corporation, foster an industry that realizes a magnesium recycling society, and support cooperation between companies. Japan aims to build the world's first carbon-free society.
