According to Japan's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), which commissioned IHI to develop the technology, the development marks the first time a 60 pct ammonia fuel has been used in a large power-generating facility.
As previously reported, the
Japanese government is aiming for carbon neutrality by 2050 and considers ammonia as a fuel to help achieve that goal. (Source: IHI, NHK World News, 28 Dec., 2020) Contact: IHI, +81-3-6204-7800, www.ihi.co.jp/en; NEDOO, www.nedo.go.jp/english

FH2R uses a 20MW solar array, backed up by renewable power from the grid, to run a 10MW electrolyser to produce up to 100kg of hydrogen an hour.
The project will be used as a test bed for mass production of green H2, with initial output directed to fuel hydrogen cars and buses in Japan, according to a release.

The pilot, which includes partnering with the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), is the first to connect a battery storage system in the US wholesale energy market.
The project follows an agreement signed between NEDO and the California state government's Office of Business and Economic Development to promote the use of energy storage in the state.
Californian utilities are required under State law AB 2514 to complete the installation of storage battery capacity up to a certain proportion by 2024. (Source: NEDO, New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization, Jan., 2019)

When fully operational, the the demo facility will potentially process 0.7 tpd of woody biomass to produce about 20 lpd of "neat" biojet fuel. MHPS will be responsible for the entrained-bed gasification technology, Toyo for micro-channel F-T synthesis technology and the reforming of the synthesized oil, CEPCO for equipment operation and fuel procurement, and JAXA for evaluation of combustion characteristics.
MHPS notes it has been developing coal-gasification technology since the 1980s, and has established high-performance gasification furnace technology. (Source: MHPS, Chemical Engineering, 1 Jan., 2019) Contact: MHPS, www.mhps.com; NEDO, www.nedo.go.jp; JAXA, global.jaxa.jp
