Research Description

It is important to switch from fossil fuels to renewable resources, in view of increasingly pressing global environmental issues, such as global warming, plastic pollution, and depletion of fossil resources. This interdisciplinary project aims to develop environmentally-friendly functional materials (i.e., green products) derived from unutilized biomass wastes present abundantly in Southeast Asia. My vision is to establish a circulating society towards the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and to promote science and education in Southeast Asian countries via international research collaboration and exchange program for young students and researchers.

Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is one effective solution for global warming. In this process, it is important to develop economical carbon capture technology. The membrane separation has some advantages such as low-cast, clean separation process (no chemical reaction in separation process), small footprint, easy maintenance, etc. Furthermore, the energy resources have to be shifted and utilized effectively from fossil fuels (oil, coal) to clean resources (hydrogen, natural gas, biogas). I am working on development of functional membrane materials such as CO2 capture, hydrogen purification expected as next clean energy, biogas upgrading from unutilized biomass-based methane fermentation. My vision is to contribute to develop novel functional materials for sustainable circulating society.
