- The aim is to develop a blue hydrogen production technology that reduces carbon dioxide emissions
- Plan to promote domestic and foreign commercialization after completion of development by 2022
The Korea Electric Power Research Institute plans to supply 15 GW of fuel cells for power generation and 2.1 GW of fuel cells for homes and buildings by 2040, according to the ‘Hydrogen Economy Activation Roadmap’ announced in January last year. This is promoted as the production of eco-friendly hydrogen is necessary for the smooth operation of the fuel cell for power generation.
The technology “uses eco-friendly hydrogen production technology uses water as a fuel to capture carbon dioxide without additional equipment by using oxidation and reduction reactions of metals, and at the same time can produce high-purity hydrogen. It is more efficient and economical compared to hydrogen production using chemical reactions of existing liquefied natural gas”
