Air Water joins forces with Toda Kogyo to produce hydrogen and carbon nanotubes from methane

Industrial gas giant Air Water has joined forces with chemical material manufacturer Toda Kogyo to develop a system to produce hydrogen and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) from methane, according to the Gas Review.

Using a method known as methane direct reforming, carbon from methane forms CNTs meaning that during hydrogen production no carbon dioxide (CO2) is released into the atmosphere.

A completely carbon-free process can be ensured if renewable energy is used to heat the reactor.

The project begun on July 7th of this year and is planned to achieve practical application by fiscal 2024.

The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO) will supply the partners with subsidies from two years this fiscal year to proceed with development of basic technologies.
