JAKARTA, May 30 (Xinhua) -- The Indonesia Carbon Capture and Storage Center (ICCSC) was established on Tuesday with hopes to help push the country's agenda to become a regional hub for carbon capture storage (CCS) solution.

Indonesia's Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said the ICCSC would become a new way of developing low-carbon businesses in the future, including in the development of hydrogen, blue and green ammonia, and blue and green methanol.
