In the beginning of April 2023, two notable sustainability ambassadors, Japan’s Kajima Corporation and clean-tech company Carbon Reform, installed cutting edge indoor carbon capture devices and air quality sensors in Kajima Corporation’s Technical Research Institute in Tokyo.
Kajima’s Technical Research Institute serves as the ideal location for the state-of-the-art sensors, adding on to its reputation as a modern and innovative R&D center.
Other than being an eco-friendly pioneer, the institute will also serve as a place for Carbon Reform to showcase their indoor carbon capture solutions to other businesses looking to implement energy efficient practices.
The innovative sensors are just the first step of the long-term decarbonization agenda which Carbon Reform is putting together for Kajima Corporation’s business facilities.
Next in line to fortify the company’s green technologies is the installation of the Carbon Capsule® – a modular device, intended to be integrated into the ventilation system of commercial buildings, where it will collect the released CO2, improve the indoor air quality and contribute to the company’s energy savings.
The partnership between the carbon capture startup and one of Japan’s oldest and most respected construction companies is not coincidental, as Kajima Corporation is known as a company committed to implementing sustainable practices and innovative technologies into their operations.
This cooperation represents yet another successful example of the global trend where large, established companies choose to invest in environmentally-friendly solutions in an effort to reduce their carbon footprint.
As Jo Norris, CEO of Carbon Reform, commented on the joint project “With this installation, we are excited to support Kajima Corporation in their pursuit of decarbonization and to demonstrate the benefits of our technology to a wider audience. Together, we are making great strides in reducing CO2 emissions and improving the overall air quality in commercial spaces.”
