Green Hydrogen in Japan : Toshiba and Toray Develop Iridium Oxide Nanosheet Technology

Here’s an article posted in Nikkei Asia that talks about Japan’s Hydrogen revolution.

According to the article,

  • Japanese companies like Toshiba and Toray Industries are leading the way in developing affordable “green” hydrogen technology.
  • Toshiba has made a breakthrough by reducing the iridium requirement in polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolyzers by 90% through the development of iridium oxide nanosheet technology.
  • This innovation is expected to significantly reduce the cost of electrolyzers, making green hydrogen more affordable and ready for commercialization in the mid-2020s.
