The KRW23bn (US$17.5m) facility will produce more than seven tonnes of hydrogen daily and be capable of supplying fuel for 410,000 hydrogen vehicles a year.

It is the first of its kind in the Korean capital region and the second in the nation after the facility in Changwon City – the capital of South Gyeongsang Province – which has been operating since the end of last year.
