Accordingly, Asia-Pacific countries including Korea must establish sustainable global cooperation on CO2 emission reduction for the mitigation of climate change.

KIGAM has researched climate change mitigation technologies that make use of waste and CO2 (i.e. Low carbon high-functional green cement by utilization coal power plant ash and CO2; Waste paper pulp In-situ Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) technology by utilization of CO2) as the Korean CCUS technology.

These climate change CCUS technologies developed in Korea will be shared with Asia-Pacific countries as climate change solutions, before further strengthening of global cooperation on water and disease issues.

In particular, this business forum will be a platform to establish international cooperation networks between industry, universities, and institutes, as well as establishing MOUs and business networks between companies from Korea and Asia-Pacific countries.
