Hydrogen Gas Project in Japan

Japan’s major LNG buyer Jera has received the go-ahead to start a demonstration project blending hydrogen at one of its existing gas-fired power plants. Jera said this represents Japan's first initiative to use a large amount of hydrogen as fuel in a large-scale commercial LNG-fueled thermal power plant. The use of zero-emissions fuels is gaining momentum in Japan following the government’s net-zero pledge by 2050 with an eye on imports of ammonia and hydrogen. Jera, which set its own 2050 corporate net-zero goal before the Tokyo government's announcement, said it plans to reduce CO2 emissions by gradually increasing the utilization rates of hydrogen and ammonia before achieving zero-emission thermal power plants.
