Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), UAE has signed two agreements with Japanese partners to beef up the low-carbon hydrogen value chain between the UAE and Japan. The agreements will focus on developing advanced practical solutions to help meet the growing global demand for clean fuels.
ADNOC is into developing global markets for hydrogen and its carrier fuels such as ammonia. The firm said that these latest strategic agreements demonstrate firm’s commitment to working with the customers to decarbonize the energy system.
Commenting on the partnerships, ADNOC said that agreement with Japanese firm Kawasaki aims to explore production, liquefaction and transportation of hydrogen to key global market while the partnership with the Japan organization for metals and energy security, Mitsui, INPEX and the Clean Fuel Ammonia Association targets to confirm clean certification for ADNOC’s low-carbon ammonia projects. As both energy sources emit no carbon dioxide, they will play a key role in decarbonizing hard-to-abate sectors.
