TOKYO -- Japan, the U.S., Australia and the 10 members of ASEAN are forming a partnership to commercialize the technology behind carbon capture, utilization and storage as early as this decade, opening up ways to bury carbon dioxide in Southeast Asia to reduce emissions.

The CCUS technology is seen as vital to achieving net-zero carbon emissions. For example, carbon dioxide emitted from a thermal power plant could be captured and injected into a gas field, adding pressure underground that would in turn lead to more gas production.
