According to The Australian Financial Review, Hazer Group has struck a deal with two major Japanese companies to explore building a hydrogen production facility in Chubu, in a major boost to the efforts of the junior technology company to demonstrate the viability of its technology.
Under the terms of the deal, Hazer, Chubu Electric and Chiyoda have agreed to work on a hydrogen and graphitic carbon production hub in the Chubu region of Japan, using the Perth-based company’s technology.
The Hazer process takes natural gas and breaks it up into carbon and hydrogen atoms using a well-known scientific process called the thermocatalytic decomposition of methane. The carbon contained in the gas is trapped, overcoming other methods of producing hydrogen, most notably using gas to power hydrolysis.
