Japan is putting $2.35bn into a project to turn coal from Victoria’s Latrobe Valley into “clean hydrogen” using carbon capture and storage technology.
The investment marks the start of the “commercial demonstration phase” of the Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) project which last year delivered a world-first cargo of liquefied hydrogen to Japan on a purpose-built ship.
