A consortium in Japan connecting an MCH supply chain between Brunei and Japan which will in turn create a hydrogen logistics network, has been awarded a grant from the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation of Japan (NEDO).
The Advanced Hydrogen Energy Chain Association for Technology Development (AHEAD) is undertaking a demonstration project for hydrogen energy supply chain utilising the organic chemical hydride method.
The dehydrogenation plant at the Keihin Refinery of Toa Oil, located on the Kawasaki City waterfront, has entered into stable operation to separate off hydrogen and tolene from methylcyclohexane (MCH) produced in Brunei Darussalam.
AHEAD said this marks a significant milestone in the project, as the consortium has realised what it says is the “world’s first international hydrogen supply chain” by connecting Brnei Darussalam and Japan through a series of processes including MCH production in Brunei, maritime MCH transport and dehydrogenation of MCH in Japan.
