Cooperation on HTGRs to produce hydrogen

The Japanese multinational Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has suggested cooperating with industries overseas to use high-temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTGRs) to produce hydrogen “on a massive scale” and supplying it to the steel manufacturing industry.

The engineering, electrical equipment and electronics company, which has a nuclear power generation subsidiary, said it wants to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and the first step could be to reduce CO2 emissions through the decarbonisation of thermal power and nuclear power systems.
