Feasibility Study of "CO2 Free Hydrogen Chain" Utilizing Australian Brown Coal Linked with CCS


We had investigated feasible measures to reduce CO2 emission and came to conclusion that introduction of new fuel such as hydrogen with near zero CO2 emission is required for achieving Japan’s commitment of 80% CO2 reduction by 2050. Under this background, we are proposing and aiming to realize “CO2 free hydrogen chain” utilizing Australian brown coal linked with CCS. In this chain, hydrogen produced from brown coal is liquefied and transported to Japan by liquid hydrogen carrier. We have conducted feasibility study of commercial scale “CO2 free hydrogen chain”, whose result shows the chain is technically and economically feasible.
