Mitsubishi develops Singaporean Hydrogen

Japan's Mitsubishi and its affiliate Chiyoda have signed a memorandum with Singaporean firms PSA Corp, Jurong Port, City Gas, Sembcorp Industries and Singapore LNG to develop hydrogen as a fuel in Singapore, the companies said in statements on March 30.

Singapore expects its emissions to peak in 2030 and has set a goal of halving them from this level to 33mn metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2050. It plans to draw on low-carbon technologies including hydrogen as an energy source.

Under the memorandum, the group will discuss the the technical and commercial feasibility of hydrogen as energy, and develop businesses for its import and use in Singapore. They will discuss the use of Chiyoda's Spera hydrogen storage and transportation technology, enabling hydrogen to be transported in chemical tankers.
