Signing of the MOU



 Purpose and Background of this MOU  

The purpose of this MOU is to promote the technological development of PCP/MOF in Indonesia by the three parties. This will further promote the Smart Gas Network Concept operation business promoted by YEC and Atomis.

The Smart Gas Network Concept is a system in which gas is distributed without pipelines by utilizing CubiTan®, a next-generation high-pressure gas container filled with PCP/MOF developed by Atomis as an adsorbent, and its usage is remotely monitored and managed through IoT devices. The system is designed to optimize delivery and conserve resources. The system can contribute to "optimizing delivery and saving resources" and "improving convenience for users by knowing the remaining capacity.

In addition, Indonesia has large-scale plantations in various locations, and the biogas produced from the residues remains unutilized. By filling and distributing CubiTan® with this biomagas, it is expected to promote local production for local consumption of energy, and to convert to bio-based renewable energy, thereby contributing to a decarbonized society.
