Hydrogen Research Department

Hydrogen Research Department mainly conducts researches on generation and storage of hydrogen, a promising clean energy. We develop core technologies for hydrocarbon reform (natural gas and ammonia reforming), green hydrogen generation (alkaline/PEM/AEM water electrolysis, seawater electrolysis, ammonia electrolysis, photochemical hydrogen generation, and thermochemical water splitting process), hydrogen storage system (metal hydride and complex hydride), and integrated system to establish a hydrogen townhouse residential model.
