On May 31, 2021, 3DOM established BINEX Inc. to earnestly address food, environmental, and energy issues and construct a value chain for biomethanol.
BINEX will breed and cultivate sorghum, which sequesters large quantities of carbon dioxide during growth; supply sorghum grain as a foodstuff; produce and supply biomethanol from residue such as leaves and stalks; and develop applications for biomethanol as a hydrogen carrier in fuel cells and semiconductor manufacturing, fuel for internal combustion engines, and substitute for petrochemical feedstock.
BINEX is a joint venture held by 3DOM (60%), Biomass Energy Corporation (30%), Mebius Co., Ltd. (5%), and Future Science Research Inc. (5%). 3DOM Executive Vice President Hiromichi Aoki has been appointed Representative Director.
BINEX will strive to create a bountiful future in harmony with nature.
