Shimizu Corporation and Hokkaido University have developed an applicator designed to enhance carbon dioxide (CO2) absorption by simply applying it to the surface of existing concrete structures.

This innovation, which transforms concrete structures into forest-like ‘CO2 absorbers’, is known as Direct Air Capture (DAC) coating. It even controls corrosion of the rebar (reinforcement bar) inside the concrete, helping to prolong the lifespan of the reinforced concrete.

Osaka-Kansai-Japan Expo 2025, slated to kick off in 2025, is planning to use the applicator for its pavilion.
