Iwatani Australia is set to open a new Brisbane office to strengthen relationships with the local governments and companies to procure a large-scale supply chain of overseas hydrogen.
It is hoped that, through promotion of a project led by the carbon-free Hydrogen Energy Supply-chain Technology Research Association (HySTRA) and with collaborations with Stanwell and Fortescue Metals Group, that a commercial supply chain could be established by 2030.
Iwatani is positioning itself so that it is prepared for the increasing global awareness of the environment and the utilisation of carbon-free hydrogen energy.
To help achieve the carbon-neutral and decarbonised societal goals outlined by the Japanese government, Iwatani will secure large amounts of inexpensive liquid hydrogen overseas.
It is hoped that this will facilitate a society capable of the large-scale utilisation of hydrogen and thereby contributing to the Japanese net zero goals.
