Air Liquide’s Tokyo Innovation Campus in Yokosuka, Japan has celebrated its first year of operation.
With this new facility, Air Liquide completed its renovation of a global network of five Innovation Campuses in Europe, the United States and Asia.
The €50m ($56.1m) campus focuses on the energy transition, environment, healthcare and digital transformation.
It develops advanced materials, especially for the manufacture of ‘next generation’ semiconductors, flexible displays, energy storage and distribution.
R&D teams, digital specialists, experts in customer applications and teams dedicated to exploring new markets will accelerate the development of solutions to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon footprint and develop new energies, such as hydrogen and biomethane.
The Tokyo Innovation Campus’ laboratories and pilot platforms are equipped to facilitate research and development undertaken in collaboration with Air Liquide’s customers as well as start-ups or academic partners.
