Making Hydrogen Energy Society Reality

Since 15.1.2011 Iwatani Corporation is cooperating with the Fukuoka Prefecture and the City of Kitakyushu in Japan  for the project "Hydrogen Supply - Utilization Technology" (HySUT), working on the proof-of-concept of a Hydrogen Energy Model Town called "Kitakyushu Hydrogen Town".

Steelworks producing hydrogen as a byproduct supply the city with hydrogen utilizing a 1.2km pipeline.

Pure Hydrogen Type Fuel Cells set up in ordinary homes, commercial and public facilities generate electricity and hot water.

The world's first "Hydrogen Town" became reality.
