24 Sep 2012

Japan’s government is to promote research into technologies for liquefying hydrogen and storing it for use as fuel, the Nikkei reports. The research would kick-off in FY 2013 with the participation of universities and oil companies; the aim is to have practical solutions ready for demonstration tests by the early 2020s.

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) will be seeking an allocation of about 2 billion yen in the FY2013 budget.
